Like most white-collar workers, Andrew Ejike gets dressed and leaves his home at Enugu town in the morning. A computer notebook bag, which he carries like a suitcase, indicates that he is going to the office. If he returns home in the day, his neighbours often ask:”How was work today?” And he answers by saying,”Work was nice”.
Interestingly, Ejike does not have a job, and certainly doesn’t have a formal employment. He’s unemployed.
But he has’created’ a’job’ for themself. He is, more or less, a ‘professional’ punter. Sports gambling is what Ejike does and if he leaves ‘work’ each morning on working times, the’office’ he goes is actually any sports pub about town.
On getting into the bar, Ejike would set up his notebook connect to the Internet with a mobile device, open the web site of any of the mobile sports gambling companies and start working on predictions, or permutations, in order to think of the stakes he would set for your day.
A bachelor’s degree holder in Estate Management from a national university, Ejike was sustaining himself and his young family with proceeds from sports gambling after failing to secure a steady employment since he graduated over 10 decades ago.
In a chat with our correspondent, Ejike explained he dropped two previous jobs following the firms that he was working for shut down.
