I'm guessing the bank that replaced three of you was Sterling Bank, right?
No, not Sterling Bank.

Bros, you even fit marry wife and born not 1, 2, but 3 children. Men like us wey never see money do better dating, ‘talkless’ of paying for father-in-law marriage list. You can afford to have 3 kids (from my understanding, having just one kid is really capital-intensive) while your parents who suffered to raise you up are being laughed at for not wearing good clothes?
The crux of the matter is we all have our stories. Yours may have been financial, and others may be healthwise, emotional, death of family/friend, betrayal from family/friend, heartbreak, or even ‘spiritual’. No one really wins a prize for having the most problem in life, or does anyone? I’ll be more impressed when I can see how you’ve touched or changed people's lives even from your painful experiences or the little you have, but from your story, your parents’ clothes haven’t been changed even when you can afford to.

Now, NNPC be like, ‘Does he really deserve this job?’
Bro, I did not share my experience to have an award as the person with the worst problem. There might be someone out there who is going through more difficult problems. If you read my post very well, you'd realize that I shared my experiences cos of those who are feeling suicidal owing to the difficulties they are facing. To help them know that even if I am still kicking and doing all I can to improve myself, they can still keep hope alive.

As for my parents, I am trying my best to care for them but not to the extent I really desire considering what they did for me. Besides, I am training my younger ones in school. Bro it's not easy. If you're fortunate to start well early, just thank God. The race is not for the swift.

Bro if u hear some people's case eh.., nigeria is just so fvcked up. My friend just turned 29. He has not had any job since he finished nysc at 25years and has been managing to teach home lessons to sustain himself. He cannot apply for gt roles now because most require one to be at most 25 or 26years old, neither can he apply for experienced hire because he has no relevant experience. He is stuck in the middle. He overheard his uncles mocking his dad for wasting his money in sending him to a private school with nothing to show for it. The dude drank sniper recenly but didn't die. I am now housing him and hoping good fortune from nnpc will smile on him. The guy is a academically ok. Graduated with cgpa of 3.78.
Bro the situation is only in God's hands. If I play my record for you, hmmmmm. Being from a family that is struggling, my parents managed to see me through school. After graduation in 2007 with a 2.1, all hopes were high and everyone was looking up to me because I was the first child of a family of 6.

I have gone for interviews in almost all the companies in Nigeria, Shell, Chevron, Mobil, Total, Saipem etc and nothing still happened.

In 2013, I got a job in a bank. In fact I was given a staff ID and was sent to a training school. But at the end of the training school, three of us were replaced by three people who joined us midway into the training school. Mehn, you needed to see the way I was crying at the bank's headquarters, begging them to reconsider their decision, that I did excellently well during the school. In fact my class mates in the school couldn't believe their eyes that I was dropped, cos I was one of the best, if not the best in the training school, even as an engineering graduate. But I picked myself up and moved on.

Toward the end of 2013, I applied for the Nlng graduate recruitment. I passed the first and second tests as well as the assessment centre. In fact after the assessment centre, regret mails were sent to those who were not successful and I wasn't sent any. In fact the mail I received says that they would get back to me pretty soon. Boy I was so excited. I thought that was the last straw that would break the camel's back. But lo and behold, after about 2years of waiting, they sent invites for medicals. I wasn't sent. The mail they sent me says " though your performance was commendable, however we regret to blah blah blah". That was the worst time of my life. I became so devasted that I refused to eat. In fact I swore that I was not going to serve God again, that he doesn't care about me. It was terrible. How I managed to pick myself after that still baffles me today.

Since then I had become reluctant to apply for jobs. I later got a job in a servicing company but some of us were dropped after some time, cos of the fact that the company lost some of its contracts during the periods of upheavals in the oil and gas industry.

Now I am teaching in a private school, preparing candidates for IELTS, SAT and TOEFL. Yes I make some money but it's hardly enough cos of the responsibilities I have on my shoulders. My parents are aged and my younger ones who are in school are all dependent on me. What is more? I am married with 3 kids.

Sometimes I feel so frustrated to the extent that I feel life is not worth living. All my classmates, when they see me, the don't believe I am still on this level, cos I was always at the top of my class and I this kind of versatile guy who can do well in any discipline.

However, I still believe I will make. I am still struggling to improve on myself. As someone who is knowledgeable in production and well engineering, I have done certifications. And I believe that God will one day pick up my call. I am also an Nnpc hopeful.

So guys, learn from me. If I am still kicking and hopeful, please don't give up. It shall be alright. Although I am still pained at heart that I can't take care of my parents who deprived themselves of comfort just to send me to school. People laughed at them for not wearing good clothes. But I can't care for them the way I should. My heart still weeps bitterly. But I still remain positive anyways.
