It is not only jobs that are hunted. In Nigeria, one still has to go through the activity of house-hunting when the need to change a place of residence presents itself.
A Nigerian man has had his own share of experience in the course of house-hunting.
The man @Bard_Boi_ took to Twitter on Tuesday, February 9 to lament what transpired between him and a house agent.
He said a day before, he had gone to look for a house with the aid of a house agent. He however was left in shock as the agent remarked that the landlord of a particular house wouldn't consider him a worthy tenant in his house as he looked like a jobless man.
"I went hunting for an apartment yesterday and this agent looked at me and said, the landlord won’t accept you, you don’t look like you have a job.
"God remove shame from my life."
Tweeps flooded the comment section to express their shock at his unpleasant experience.
"Omo so renting house now s by look n m so sure it will be Lagos, people way normal for here bo reach 10."
"Mine said he wasn’t going to give me house that I’m not married and I look like someone that’s doing yahoo. After talking and talking, he called me back when I was about leaving to come and pay."
A lady @kamsy_official commented:
"Over here, if you are a single woman, it becomes almost impossible to get an apartment."
Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported how a landlord waived rent for 200 tenants amid Coronavirus pandemic.
That was what a landlord in Brooklyn, Mario Salerno, did as he waved rent for his 200 tenants, telling them they do not have to bother about paying for the month of April, Daily Mail reports.
The owner of 80 apartments in Williamsburg wrote a note to each of his tenants to inform them about the decision.
