Jobs/Vacancies / Re: Have You Encountered Such? How Did You Handle It? by Equiano: 7:03pm On Sep 27
Sent in my resignation letter on a Friday evening copying all the HODs and HR with a month's notice. Next Monday my unit head called me for a meeting, as we were discussing, he said: I don't give a damn, am going to fast forward your replacement process". Immediately, I replied: "I don't give a damn either" and walked out from the meeting. I sent another resignation letter with immediate effect, collected my exit sign out and interview from HR and paid them off. Bunch of jokers that doesn't value what they have. I used the few weeks in between to do professional certifications and passed 3 out of 4, which I used for a renegotiation with my current employer for triple wages and benefits than where I came from. Moral: Know your worth and be the best in what you do.

Religion / Re: Is Church Wedding Important? by Equiano: 8:11pm On Nov 20, 2021
NO! The so called church wedding is another man's tradition. Once you have done the payment of bride price and the necessary rites, a marriage has been performed. Then add the legal backing by going to the marriage registry.

Education / Re: Were You Broke In School? Share Your Story by Equiano: 8:29am On Sep 17, 2021
Resumed a new session with a 120 naira. That was the beginning of my success in life. I had to write CAs for course mates, term papers, literature reviews for tokens as 50 and 100 naira sometimes. To be sincere, the 'brokeness' turned me to a star, hence my moniker. I will write any paper in the social sciences faculty. RESULTS: was assigned as a quasi- graduate assistant in my final year with a token of 18400 naira. I was sending money home before my graduation. #UNN #MbanefoHallRoom235.
