Nigerians who hate their jobs

The average Nigerian has been there at some point – working a job they don’t feel strongly about because of a myriad of reasons. This can be a really dark thing, but it’s something to also laugh out, especially if you’re out of such a job.

1. When your alarm goes off in the morning and the first thing that comes to your mind is if you really need the job
