I will not be a cleaner forever

Meanwhile, earlier reported that a Nigerian lady with the social media handle @DatGirlAdun took to social media to talk about her life working as a cleaner.

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..."

She went on to say that doing otherwise will not make people who do not like her change their opinions, adding that though she is a cleaner now, her position will not remain so forever.
