According to a post she made on LinkedIn, she was being paid less than N3000, which was not enough to take care of her needs.
"3 years ago I stopped being a house help. With less than N3,000 (approximately $6 at that time) a month as salary. To add to this misery, it was not even the salary that was my problem, but the hard labour that followed.
"I did it so that I could afford to pay for my fees back in college, but unfortunately I ended up missing some papers in my final exams because my college fees was not complete, I was really pained."
She called it quits
She said at some point, she decided to quit the job to find something better.
In a brief chat, Peace told Legit.ng that she became a house girl so as to feed and pay her school fees as she was a student then
