A Nigerian lady has reportedly turned down a lucrative job in Lagos, because she’s afraid of Third Mainland Bridge.
According to a Twitter user, @lollypeezle, who shared the story on the platform, the lady applied for the job thinking she would be given the role in the Mainland office of the firm whose island office is the only one functioning at the moment because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
He further revealed that the lady turned down the job, which offers to pay her one hundred and ninety thousand naira monthly, on grounds of her being scared of “plenty water and Third Mainland Bridge.”
