 "I don?t wish what I passed through in Abuja on my worst enemy" - Nigerian shoemaker shares photo of office floor where she used to sleep

 "I don?t wish what I passed through in Abuja on my worst enemy" - Nigerian shoemaker shares photo of office floor where she used to sleep

 

June 30th 2019, I left abakaliki to Abuja in search of greener pastures, pastures that turned to dry grass, I left thinking I will stay with my friend until I’m able to find my feet, my friend was supposed to be in Abuja a week after I left, so a colleague offered that I stay in his place for that one week until she comes back.

One week passed, my friend didn’t come back due to circumstances, atmosphere changed, and I really won’t blame the person, I kuku left and started sleeping in the office, in this very place you are seeing in this picture, it was tough cause I don’t know how to cope with cold, most nights I stand or walk around because lying down in this condition caused me serious chest pains, I saw shege in Abuja, I still have flashes of those times and shiver.

 

I had to come back to Ebonyi, since I have a skill and a bed here, many people felt I made a mistake, some even said Abuja is tough in the beginning eventually I would have survived, my dear it’s not about me, how would I survive on 40k salary with a son in a private school, a mom whose business failed and a dad who’s health isn’t conducive for his carpenter job? How long will I put up with sleeping in this condition or occasionally visiting my ex who is already in another relationship, if I see my boyfriend ex in his house under the guise of accommodation, how will I feel?

 

Next time you see me making back to back business post, remember this picture, I do not ever want to go back to this situation, I don’t even wish what I passed through in Abuja on my worst enemy, and everyday of my life, I give God glory for where he brought me from and where I am now, I always don’t share my sad stories because I feel I am not rich yet, but heck, I’m so so much better than two years ago, so why not share it and be grateful.
