“What is the relevance of sociology in the year 2020? The Return on Investment for such a course is minimal. In profit and loss accounting, reading sociology for 4 years is purely a loss, in terms of time and money. A bricklayer is more relevant!”
Tweeps took to the comment section of the post to share their thoughts.
A Twitter user with the handle @ClintonOkwara wrote:
“I wouldn’t agree less. But it can actually be a foundation to something. I actually have a friend or let’s say two who studied sociology and I’m really glad the way their discipline shaped their thinking and how they approach certain things. They are on a second degree now tho.”
Another Twitter user with the handle @Anikingsley3 wrote:
“I’m a sociologist by discipline.. And I’d say that one man’s meat is another’s poison. Sociology is a good course and enables one to relate and understand the society well. You can as well learn a trade for yourself because the country made it so and not the course itself.”

In other news, Omokri has given some words of wisdom to his followers on Twitter as he usually does.
In a series of tweets on Wednesday, September 2, Omokri likened money to fire, saying fire is not good or bad in itself.
According to the Omokri, fire is a light in the hand of a good man and the same fire will burn things down in the hand of a bad man.
