I won't be a cleaner forever

Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that a Nigerian lady with the handle @DatGirlAdun talked about her life working as a cleaner on social media.

In a post on Friday, April 30, the lady said when a colleague asked her why she likes sharing photos of herself in a cleaner's uniform, she replied that "it doesn't matter..."
