A Facebook user, Daniel Usifoh, had an encountered with a graduate accountant who was selling food in a wheel barrow in Ekpoma. After patronizing the food seller the Facebook user shared these inspiring photos. In his words:
“I saw this man on my way to PH hawking cooked food in wheelbarrow this morning in Ekpoma, Edo State. I was moved to patronize him even when I was never hungry.”
“Guess what…… he is an accountant, he graduated 4yrs ago but never got any job. He decided to go catering school. Today he stepped out in the streets of Ekpoma where he graduated from to do his first personal business ever.
I asked why he decided to go this way and his response was WOW. He said “bros wetin I go do na, hence there is no job anywhere and I am the first son of my parent I decided to go this way rather than becoming an armed rubber to take care of those who took care of me from childhood before they die in regrets”.
You know what….. he is an Igbo man…
I respect his courage….
Tomorrow when he will eventually become the owner of a chain of restaurants, no one will know what he went through to get there. Don’t just sit down and wait for the government to do something for you. Get up and get busy!
