Man treks to work
Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that a young student, Walter, had to trek 20 miles on his first day to resume at his new workplace.
His car broke down the night before so he resorted to going on foot. Before morning, the young man tried to see if his friends could take him but nothing came up as it was such short notice.
The young man never allowed that to discourage him. Instead of staying back, he decided to walk all the way.
