"Wow, that’s great. please start producing for our policemen.make dem no dey wear 'I swear to God'."
"I wanna know, are you the one placing the design yourself on the shoe? If YES, what's the machine you use? If NO, how'd you get it done? Asking for a friend who's into this too."
"Can you make school boots (size 32) for a child?"
"I love the sole and design. But don’t you think it would have been better to write your brand name on the side instead of the top front? Just a suggestion though."
Students spoke about the strike
Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that Nigerian students lamented about the crisis caused by the incessant strike, and how it caused them untoward hardship.
Two young students who spoke to the BBC said that it has affected them and their time is being wasted. It should be noted that lecturers went on strike because of unpaid allowances.
A student of the University of Ibadan (UI), Ayomide Babalola Elizabeth, said that a course she should be studying for four years may take her five to six years because of perpetual strike actions.
