Nigerian politician and social media commentator, Oloye Akin Alabi has admonished Nigerians never to table the entirety of their problems before influential people.
The Oyo State lawmaker advised social media users not to unravel their problems when they meet wealthy people.
According to him, many people are fond of telling high network individuals about their life struggles in order to attract sympathy.
Akin Alabi who warned people to desist from such act said the rich also have problems of their own issues.
“If anyone calls you for any sort of home service, do your job and don’t bombard them with your life issues. They have their own issues as well.”
Akin Alabi continued;
“Your primary reason for you being there is to do your job and get paid.
The referral is only an extra. If it doesn’t come, it should not be a problem and stop being entitled.
Do your work and face your issues.
If they remain your long term customers and a personal relationship comes out of it, then you can ask.
If they say no, it does not mean they are bad people. Do not moralize how they spend their money.
It’s theirs, not yours. Do your work.”
