Research Supervisor (Current Employee) – Ibadan, Oyo state. Onne, Rivers state – May 9, 2019
A typical day at work is something i always look up to because of the passion i have and also seeing my plants grow gives me joy. I have learned to be resilient, to accommodate, to tolerate, and to accept everyone i come in contact with through my job. The management needs to do more because most of the staff strength do not get the best of their services being appreciated. The most enjoyable part of my work is to see that everything i plant produces well and that's the only motivation i have.
