According to him, charging of phones and other electrical accessories has put food on my table and money in my bank account.
“Although, I am not happy that there is irregular electricity supply in Lafia, I can say that has been to my advantage now.
“Had power supply been stable, I would not have been able to make the N6,000 I make at least in a day. If you multiply it into 30 days, it is N180, 000 in a month,” he said.

Usman appreciated his customers, even as he advised the youth not to always wait on the government for jobs.

“You can learn one or two skills to enable you
