A Nigerian lady, while offering an advise on how intentional people can be, revealed the thoughtful thing an okada rider did for his girlfriend.
While sharing the story on the microblogging platform X, the lady who identified as @mehreeee mentioned that she loved the man’s intentionality.
She began by sharing that the okada man stopped beside the salon where she was getting her hair done to purchase a dress for his girlfriend.
The dress he chose was beyond his budget, and when the lady offered to assist him by paying the remaining balance, he refused.
He then instructed the seller to hold onto the dress and his current cash, as he would return with the remaining balance in a few hours.
When she questioned him about it, he simply said it would give him more satisfaction to know that he bought it himself with his own money.
The tweet read;
“Yesterday, at a salon close to where I was braiding, an okada man stopped to buy a gown for his babe. He brought out his phone to show the seller if the gown would fit the babe in the picture and she said yes. Gown was 8k he priced it for 6k and she said that was the last price.
He gave her 6k & told her to give him an hour, he’ll be back with the 2k balance. I overheard their conversation, called him back and offered to balance the remaining 2k and he refused. I asked him why, he said I shouldn’t bother that it will give him more satisfaction knowing he bought it himself with his own money I love love You really do not need millions to be thoughtful and intentional to the people you love.”
