A market woman who speaks English fluently has lamented low patronage due to the coronavirus pandemic Nigeria is currently battling with.
The woman, who graduated from Kwara State Polytechnic, Ilorin, said she no longer sell like she used to due to the pandemic.
She said some of her ex-coursemates make jest of her because she sells ponmo (cow skin). According to her, she had to take over her mother's business because she couldn't find a job.
The trader, however, said there are former coursemates of hers who are proud of the business she does. She said the ones that are proud of her are aware that she's doing well.
She said she intends to continue with the business for two more years, after which she will travel out of the country.
