It all start with government paying the allowance of 33,000 naira. Corpers are happy and joyful and they look excited as bills upon bills continue to pile up long before they receive the money
Corpers are in a joyous mood as they receives different alert from government, place of work and other institutions they've worked with. You can see the smiles on their face
But bills have to be paid don't they? Out of the little they have been given, transport takes its own share, subscriptions and data also takes its own share not forgetting food which is a major and important need everyone need to attend to. Also accommodation and money for drinks are also embedded within
At the end of the day only a minute amount is left for them to survive on after all their bills have been paid. They start looking forward to the next month from the beginning of this month
Even the little money that remains is being collected from their hands via bank charges monthly
hence don't see corpers as being rich because of the 33,000 naira they collect because at the end of the day most of this money follow different expenses
