[Advice Needed] She Threatened To Dump Me If I Don’t Do a Business, My Academics is at Stake! What Can I do?

Dear Tee,
I am a student in one of the Nigerian universities, presently in 300 level. My girlfriend told me last week that there is this business she wants me to be involved in, she didn’t really explain what kinda business it is, but I don’t think it is legal. She said I would be travelling to South Africa to meet the people that would put me through and that she has arranged for everything that would be required for the trip. This business according to her would yield millions of naira. She however threatened to dump me if I don’t do it. The issue I am having now is that the week I am scheduled to travel is the same week examination start in school. Meanwhile, I am already on probation in school – if I miss this exam, that would lead to my dismissal from my school. I am so confused here as I know that there are many graduates out there that are unemployed. Should I go for the business?

Dear L. A.,
I feel you should stick to your academics and write your examinations. You don’t even know if this business is legal or not, what if it is not legal and you are caught by the authorities over there? A bird in hand is worth more than ten in the bush. Face your academics squarely, read well for your examinations and make sure you pass. Its not too late to upgrade your CPGA. If your girlfriend would not understand, let her go…. Remember, this is your life! Not hers! Wish you success in your journey of life.

  1. Guy,wise ooo.. u sure say nor be cocaine biz so? Because it is only dat kind of biz dat can yield millions overnight.. If it is legal then why hasn’t she told u. My friend,dat biz is highly illegal. And as for your education,face them squarely. Imagine you going to southafrica for a biz that you are clueless about. SHe doesn’t love u my friend. All she want is money and she want to use u to achieve that goal$
    Guy,don’t neglect your education because of one stupid girl telling u bullshitt. What if you eventually neglect your exam and go for the biz,and maybe it is illegal and you are caught.it will be 2 losses in 1 silly action.( Being withdrawn and jail).. Think wisely broda.

  2. After I initially commented I appear to have clicked the -Notify
    me when new comments are added- checkbox and now every time a
    comment is added I receive four emails with the exact same comment.
    Is there a means you are able to remove me from that service?
