Nigerian lady Egbohaghe Victoria took the bull by the horn and showed that she is not going to give up any time soon. On Tuesday, February 9, Victoria took to the streets of Abuja with a cardboard box that read: “Please, I need a job.”
On the placard, she spelt out her qualification, saying she has BSc in international relations. Underneath that is her email. On top the cardboard is a plea that she really needs a job.
Nigerians were amazed by the bold move as they reposted her photo and made sure it went viral across many social media platforms.
A Twitter user with the handle @Tvaninks, who shared her photos, asked people to help her if they can. See the post below: As at the time of writing this report, the tweet has about 15,000 likes with over 14,000 comments.
