Problems Of Public Compound

By - - [ Matters Arising ]

Our people say it's only when you live  close to people that you'll really know their character. Public compound is full of troubles...

I saw hell in the last public compound I lived. A compound of 8 face me I face you rooms. It was there that I realized what normally brings quarrel in a public compound is light (elictricity bill). I entered that compound without knowing they were owing the sum of One Hundred and Eighty-Nine Thousand Naira as electricity bill. Not until NEPA cut off the light. After the light was cut off, I noticed that nobody in the compound was interested in making efforts for reconnection. I am one of those who like light a lot. So I took it upon myself to go round asking for each person's contribution for the light to be reconnected.

I felt frustrated, embarrassed  and disappointed. At a point, one of my co-tenants who is from Igala threatened my life and that landed us in Police Station. At the end of the day, I had to contact NEPA who brought light to my room directly from the pole. That caused me alot of money...

Another experience is in my current compound. I bought 2 horse power window AC. Then one day, my neighbour came and knocked at my door. When I opened the door and asked what brought him, he said my AC is disturbing him that I should remove the AC. I was like are you joking or something?. Meanwhile, the person who just left the apartment used AC in that same place. Even the person that left before the last person used AC in that same spot according to the landlady. 

Can I hear your own experience if you ever lived in a public compound?

I have stayed in a public compound once and the public bathroom was disgusting, I got skin infection in the toilet.My own advice to anyone staying at a public compound should be very vigilant about all these skin infection because it cause great damage to the human body.And also mind your business in that kind of compound because some tenants are cultist.

Generally, no body wishes to live in a public compound but when one sees himself or herself in such mess, Different stories becomes the other of the day. I have never seen a person who lives in a public compound without a controversial issues unless the person is a saint. First , House rent issue with landlord or caretaker, second environmental problems which may be dirtiness , quarrels, to mention but a few. Is better heard than witness what people are passing through all in the name of living in public compound.

Considering the economy and financial stress involved,no one would have wished to live in a public compound... meanwhile, however the situation is,one should learn how to adapt, because in such a situation you will see different characters. 

 Comportment and tolerance is a necessity for survival .also management and observing overall personal hygiene is a must here.

Sincerely Speaking, living in a public compound is simply one of the worst experience one can go through. I mean, it's a place where one should never think of to live in, where you are forced to live with different kinds of people, quarrels here and there over trivial issues, and the annoying part of it all is sharing the same bathroom and toilet, Where one is 99.9% prone to infection.

My dear public residence is a terrible experience, it is better experienced than told. You will encounter all manner of human beings, the toilet is an eyesore the bathroom is a horror. It should have been a place where people complement each other but the reverse is usually the case. Some people are deliberate trouble makers.

Well I grew up in a face to face apartment and all I can remember are the fond memories compared to the isolated self contain apartment that we live in now. 
Every such compound have issue with settling electricity bills especially when it comes to determining the correct number of points to allot to each room. But in all it's always fun to be around lovely and accommodating people.

From my experience, living in a public compound isn't bad because the people in that compound get to be your family cause of the everyday life you guys have together. The problem about public compound is that some people in the compound are not happy with you and this can lead to different problems and hatred between you and those people. So if you are in a public compound you just got to be careful.
