Phewww....i sighed as i walked through the streets of Lagos. Someone cannot find a good job in this town? i was a nurse i had just graduated all i needed was a good job. it seemed B.sc nursing was new in town as every hospital i walked into, the receptionist/secretary gave me the confused look each time i told them i was a B.sc nurse.
This was the exact reason i left Benin city that place! how a doctor priced my services for N35,000 still baffles me. Hiannn i had graduated with a B.sc bros, i wasn't an auxiliary nurse asking me to work for 30 days to earn N35,000 was an insult.
I decided to try Lagos, the annoying body traffic on the mainland drove me to the almighty island now i could not find a job. The small money when i get i don use am print CV tire... Haba! luck shine on me now.
As i walked into Lekki, i expected more after all this was Lekki phase 1 i suppose see better offer here now i walked into several places and got the usual response, "there is no vacancy".
The annoying thing about this job hunt was the fact that i had to trek long distances. Enter bike? omo you fit miss hospital for road o as the bike man go use short cut when you nor know. Enter keke? you will get too comfortable and miss your way too so trekking was the real deal. You trek under the sun and buy cold pure water to ease your hurt Na wa! i was told nursing was lucrative but as e be "lucray" nor dey this matter ooo.
The most interesting part of this trek was the fact that horny yeye boys would stop for you. okay now! with my hips who wouldn't stop to help a JJC. Lagos can jonz you though. That's how one guy stopped to help me and asked me -"oh would you like to work as an entertainer? i have an opening for OAPs' your voice is awesome". Even though i wanted a job, i couldn't be fooled i attended Delta state university for crying out loud! Warri nor dey carry last kpata kpata na draw! who was going to be an idiot? saying you have a job for a jobless female graduate was an easy pass into Jerusalem! bros kolewerk. Anyway, i just calmly replied-"oh well i don't mind o any job is a job as far as i get paid".
My plan was to engage him in a lively conversation while i enjoyed his AC and looked out for more hospitals to drop my cv! who be mumu?
