Expectant graduate turns fish farmer after school
Legit.ng previously reported how a man who expected big companies to hire him became a fish farmer.
According to him, his seniors told him to finish school so that big companies would come looking for him.
After graduating from school, he realised that it was a lie, so he decided to start up a small farm for himself.
A TikTok video showed him taking care of his fish ponds and subsequently selling fish to a market woman who visited the farm.
