“I didn’t have N5k for JAMB so I became a taxi driver” – 22-year-old Nigerian lady

A 22-year-old lady, Lucia Osamo, has revealed that she became a taxi driver because she could not afford N5,000 to register for JAMB.

In an exclusive interview with Legit TV’s Temitope Wuraola, she said that she sometimes gets hit on by some of her male customers who would say that she is too pretty to be doing her kind of work.

The lady said that sometimes men cancel trips because she is female.

Narrating one of her experiences with a female customer, she said when she showed up, the lady asked where the original driver was.

The young lady said that after finishing her ND in mineral and petroleum resources from Auchi Poly, she became a taxi driver when furthering her education was a big problem.

Twenty-year-old Lucia said that she had to sponsor herself through school. With a very emotional face, she said she couldn’t proceed to the university because she could not get the money for the university entrance examination.

The cab driver said that her childhood dream is to become an engineer.

Below are some of the reactions:

So sad for a generation that will be sponsoring and voting BBN where women are showing their nakedness and plastic bomboms but will not help or sponsor ladies doing legit businesses or hustles. I weep for this generation!”
