The Former Ondo State Minority Chief Whip of the Ondo State House of Assembly, Hon. Yemi Tadema has said that he went through rough roads during his educational career.
Hon. Yemi Tadema revealed this yesterday, in an Interview with Ikale Voice at the council headquarters of Irele local government.
Hon. Yemi Tadema said, “I took several bumpy roads during my educational career. I graduated in 2008. It was tough but I had to.”
The Former Chief Whip further revealed that after his Secondary School Education, he moved to Lagos to settle down.
“In the space of 2years, I worked in 13 different places in Lagos. I am always fortunate to be recruited in any organization, whenever there was a job opening.
“I worked at the University of Lagos,; Yaba Tech,; also worked as a Clerk to Former President of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), Pascal Bafyau,” He said
Asked why he left his job as a clerk to the Former President of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), Pascal Bafyau, Hon. Tadema said he left because he was not getting enough salary from the job.
“I left him because I was angry. He gave me N5 after a day job. Though, that was not part of my salary. Other staff working with him were also looking starved.
“Shortly after I left Pascal Bafyau, I got a job at the Railways, Locomotive. I left Locomotive before the end of the first month. I earned N90 from my stay at Locomotive,” Hon. Tadema pointed.
He said he worked as a Fuel Attendant at one of the AP Filling Stations in Lagos.
“I worked at AP Filling State at Moloney Street, Lagos in 1982. I did not earn any salary from my job because of the flood ravaged residence of our Manager who had worked for 10years without anything to show for it. I decided it was high time I left. The Director was Saint Matthew Daniel,” He said
