‘She doesn’t misbehave’  -MEDINAT

How long have you known Olajumoke?

It has been long, about four years now. I met her the first time she came to Lagos to hawk. She just finished learning hair dressing then and needed money to set up her business. She came, worked and made a lot of money. She was able to buy the things she needed.

She came back about a month ago to work again but had to travel when school resumed. She took her elder daughter back home to resume school. She came back two weeks ago before fortune smiled on her.

How will you describe her?

She is a very nice person. She doesn’t misbehave. She faced what she came to Lagos to do. She will go and sell bread and come back to take care of her daughter.

How do you feel that things have changed positively for her?

I am very happy for her. With her kind of attitude, nobody will wish her otherwise. She is calm and respectful.

How long have you known Olajumoke?

Four years now.

How will you describe her?

She is a very good person. She is well-behaved. We all knew she is a destined child when she came over to Lagos. I was sweeping one day and she collected the broom from me. a lot of people had passed by without looking at my side. But Jumoke is different.

How do you feel that things have changed positively for her?

I feel good. I am very happy. I pray that God will keep her and grant her long life. God will also keep her marriage and her children as well.

She is my sister. We come from the same town. My husband and her husband are from the same town. We decided to come to Lagos together. She had done her freedom and needed money to buy things for her shop. I advised her to come to Lagos to work.

How will you describe her?

She is humble and a good person. Her boss does not joke with her. I mean, where she learnt hair dressing.
