How I was disappointed by a friend when I got to Asaba
When Legit.ng contacted Daniel, he said he had planned to stay with a friend in the city, but that he got disappointed when he was already in town. He said the friend told him it won't be possible to accommodate him.
According to him, he passed the night on the floor with the Keke Marwa rider that carried him in the evening. His words:
"I had employment in Asaba and I was stranded when I got there because the person I wanted staying with disappointed me. He ain't taking my calls but texted me that the family is around. I was stranded on Sunday evening."
Daniel, an electrical electronics graduate of Heritage Polytechnic, Eket said he is very grateful to Mr Harrison who favoured him.
