Like many white-collar workers, Andrew Ejike gets dressed and leaves his home in Enugu town in the afternoon. A computer laptop bag, which he carries like a suitcase, suggests he is visiting the workplace. If he returns home in the day, his neighbors frequently ask:”How was work today?” And he replies by saying,”Work was fine”.
Interestingly, Ejike does not have work, and certainly does not have an official job. He is unemployed.
But he’s’created’ a’job’ for himself. He is, more or less, a ‘professional’ punter. Sports betting is what Ejike does and if he leaves ‘work’ every morning on working days, the’workplace’ that he goes is really any sports pub about town.
On getting to the bar, Ejike would install his notebook connect to the Internet using a mobile device, open the website of any of those mobile sports gambling companies and begin working on forecasts, or permutations, so as to think of the bets he’d set to your day.
A bachelor’s degree holder in Estate Management in a federal university, Ejike was sustaining himself and his young family with profits from sports betting after failing to secure a stable occupation because he graduated over ten decades ago.
In a conversation with our correspondent, Ejike clarified he dropped two previous jobs after the firms he was working for closed down.
