A Nigerian lady has shared her recent memorable encounter with a street tout, (agbero) she maintains a friendly relationship with.
The entrepreneur known as Phinesmiles said whenever they cross paths, he always hails her and she ends up giving him some little cash.
However, she recently found herself stranded when her car tyre burst, as fate would have it, the man saw her and decided to help.
He called a vulcanizer to fix it for her and even paid for the service, but she still offered him money in gratitude for lending a helping hand.
Before they parted ways, he informed her that he won N3 million through sports betting and that may be the last time she would see him in that area as he was going back to his village to start transport business.
She wrote; “Every day, there is this agbero that will hail me for money. Each time I see him, I will give him any little cash I have. Sometimes, I may not have lower denominations, and I will tell him later or the next day.
Yesterday I was busy and my car tyre went down, the agbero saw it. Went to call the vulganizer to come and fix it, and he came to tell me before they started to fix it. When I asked how much he said he has paid😯 I told him not to reject the money that he needs it and I am very grateful for him taking note. I probably would have been stranded after work.
He started his usual hands up hailing. That today he has done something for me. That I may not see him again, he is going back to his village that he won bet naija 3 million over the weekend and he wants to buy a bus or car so he can do transport business
You need to the the way I was excited. He said I done suffer ehh, I no believe I go ever make am for this life. Aunty mi I done leave street ooo, I go dey help you carry shoe go Ekiti now.
I just stood there smiling. He will wash my car every morning. He will say I want to. Justify the small small money you give me. I asked if he has a drivers licence, and he said no, I referred him immediately to start one. That’s my own contribution to our new transport business.
I feel so happy seeing him live the crazy life of an agbero. I wish him well. And I pray he calls me because he hasn’t gotten a phone yet.
Omo I go to park and no hailing. My own hype man done become boss man. I just smiled and went about my duty. Life is beautiful when We are winning. I miss his early morning wahala. My prayer for anyone struggling to make it, heaven will locate you. Your efforts this month, this year will yield results. Your story will change for good.
While waiting on God, you will find good people to keep your faith alive in the journey to success. Amen. Forgive my typos I couldn’t go through before posting.”
