A Nigerian lady has taken to her Twitter account, @mzgbegborun, to narrate how a stranger she met on Twitter paid N10,000 into her account every month for 1 year during her NYSC programme and he never asked for anything in return, not even to meet up with her.
I met a guy via twitter years back… all through my service year NYSC, in 2015, he sent me 10k every month till i passed out. I’ve never met him, even till this day
Her story led to a debate about whether it is possible for a random stranger to perform unsolicited acts of kindness without asking for anything in return.
Some said that she did not tell the entire story and she must have given him something in return.
Someone even suggested she sent nudes to him in exchange for the monthly stipend. But others argued that it’s possible to meet people who do good without expecting anything in return.
This made the lady make another post where she stated how she was disappointed that people would not believe her story of how there are still good people in the world
I’m surprised at some of the responses here… it only boils down to how bad we have accustomed ourselves to not helping people sincerely and how bad our orientation is to think everyone who helps always wants something in return. I wish y’all well
