Despite my hard work, he still fired me
He added that the development came despite the fact that people commended the fence work he did, saying it was amazing.
Azeez said the company’s CEO called and said: “I want to give my architect the main job”, and that brought an end to everything.
Almost a year after, he got a call from the same person, asking him to come and work on a bigger project in Niger state.
When you are good, they will always come back
The man turned the request down. Ibrahim stated that he had to do that because he was busy with bigger things.
The engineer told his followers:
“Be strong, it might be stormy right now, but it can't rain forever. Things will definitely get better. Keep upskilling and improving yourself. They would come for you.”
