As Lifestyle Audit is legalized, see why Nigerians should be careful of what they post online

It is very important at this juncture that every Nigerian should be careful of what they post on Social media. The country is no longer as it used to be, as measures are being put in place to stop all fraudulent activities in the country. Due to the increasing rate of cybercrimes, the Lifestyle Audit was legalized to give room for authorities to invite any Nigerian flaunting expensive lifestyles that they cannot afford for possible questioning, and persecution if found guilty.

On Monday, March 22nd 2021, the Lifestyle Audit became a trending topic in the country after a post that was shared by the Special Assistant to the President on social media, Lauretta Onochie, went viral.

Lauretta Onochie in a post shared on Monday, explained that Nigerians who flaunt questionable wealth or lifestyles that they cannot afford on social media would now be called up by delagated authorities to explain the source of their wealth.

"Lifestyle Audit is now legal in Nigeria. Those who flaunt lifestyles they cannot afford, can now be investigated by any of the graft agencies to produce evidence of the sources of their wealth

You can now be called upon to explain how you acquired certain properties" she wrote

According to her, the Lifestyle Audit has now been legalized, and anyone who flaunt expensive lifestyles which they cannot afford will be called for questioning by either the Economic and Financial Crime Commission (EFCC) or Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC).

It is a thing of concern because even the innocent people may be affected, as naturally youths enjoy posting expensive lifestyles on social media just to feel among. Please before posting anything on social media, be reminded that whatever you post eyes are watching, and you may be unlucky if you cannot defend yourself before the authorities
