He narrated how he had left his previous boss who he served as an apprentice under.
According to him, his boss who was a motor parts dealer engaged in 'occultic' activities and as such he couldn't work with him.
Ifeanyi also recounted that he had quit working at a construction site because he was being owed.
The hardworking man - who has been in the venture for many years - of high spirits said he one day aspires to be a retailer in the pure water business.
He highlighted that being a non-indigene of the state somewhat posed some challenges for him in the business as he wasn't able to enjoy some benefits others in the business of hawking pure water in the state enjoy.
