In a tweet on Thursday, May 13, the Nigerian man shared a photo of himself at work and a snap showing when he got his National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) certificate.

Tagging President Muhammadu Buhari on Twitter among other handles, he said that he had to make a career switch because the Nigerian government had failed him.

His work snap has him holding a paint bucket in a room that is undergoing a decoration process.

Though his tweet has not gathered many reactions as at the time of writing this report, a tweep, @DangoteOfData, told him to keep his good work up.

Meanwhile, it was earlier reported that a Nigerian lady, Romoke Adunbarin, took to social media to talk about her life working as a cleaner.

In a Twitter post on Friday, April 30, the lady said when a colleague asked her why she likes sharing photos of herself in a cleaner's uniform, she replied that "it doesn't matter..."

Tweeps took to her comment section to praise her for being true and not living a fake social media life as many do.

The lady said being a cleaner was never the plan, adding that it became necessary as a way to get out of poverty and make something good for herself.

She said growing up, her options at getting the best opportunity were limited.
