The story of Abel Ifemi, a Special Assistant to the Governor Seriake Dickson of Bayelsa State on Social media, is that of grass to grace and he left no stone unturned as he shared his inspiring story on Facebook.
According to Abel Ifemi who was once a waiter at a hotel he was receiving #19,000 as monthly salary, he got the job immediately after his NYSC programme and it was better than staying idle. He further disclosed that his expectation of getting a job was dashed, as he found himself trekking with brown envelopes.
Sharing a throw back photo of himself in his ‘waiter outfit’, the Special Assistant to the Governor of Bayelsa State, encouraged people to start off something no matter how small it is.
Here’s what he wrote;
I have no work to do that is why I am committing crimes. That is the most moronic excuse any young Man can give.
After graduation in 2011 and successful completion of the NYSC in 2012,I returned back to my State with the hope of having a good Job,but as all expectations were shattered and cuts off,after trekking the whole state with my big Brown file.
My next point of action wasn’t to commit crime by becoming a petty thief,but I kept hope alive and Started as a waiter in one of the hotels in town with 19k as my Monthly take home. 19k of a truth can’t sustain me for the Month,but It was the best option I took than to remain idle at home.
The above picture was my first day in office at that time.
You certainly don’t have any excuse to be idle and become a nuisance in the Society.
Try and get something doing and be hopeful to God!
Remember;For you to start small does not mean that you can’t make it big!
