1. Charger or Power bank
The power situation in Nigeria is not constant. Sometimes, there is power and other times, you go hours or even days without light. Girl, you have to have your power bank or charger handy so your phone doesn’t go off or go on battery saver.
If you want to escape from the world, play your own music and eliminate the noise around you, then you need to include an earpiece or earbuds in your bag.
Yes, you need to have some change if you don’t want to have issues with the conductor in a bus, keke driver or bike man, especially in the morning. These guys are not joking.
4. Pen and Notepad
You need a pen and notepad for when an idea comes, to write down things you can go back to read later, to fill a bank teller or any other form or even lend the cute guy beside you who doesn’t have a pen.
