A Nigerian businessman identified with the Twitter handle, @mrmanodili, has taken to the micro-blogging platform to share his encounter with a Nigerian lady who slid into his DM.
According to the young man, the lady messaged him to beg for money because there is no job. However, he offered her a job per of N45,000 per month but the lady was uninterested and demanded he gave the job to somebody else.
“She sent a DM asking for a 5k for upkeep because there’s no job. She got a reply of job offer (45k per month) within her vicinity. Here’s her response… please give me the 5k and give the job to someone else, I no get strength to dey wake up every 5 O’clock. #reality.”
That is that…
However in another news, Nigerian man ordered Professor Wole Soyinka out of his seat on a flight, Tosin Odunfa, has spoken out following the huge reactions his action attracted.
Tosin Odufa who took to his Instagram page to reveal that he is the young man who told Wole Soyinka to get up from his airplane seat, debunked claims of him being disrespectful. According to him, “Prof didn’t mind getting up”.
He also revealed that he was on the Autism spectrum and needed the view from the window to keep him from getting sick on the plane, hence his insisting on taking the window seat.
“I am the young guy! Yes, the one in question with a baseball cap and t-shirt, I am unashamed to be at the prime of my youth, in fact, I blushed a little bit after reading your description of my chest and muscles. Is thank to strong discipline that I live a fit life and I am able to go to the gym o my tight schedule.
“Prof. didn’t mind getting up and in fact, he confided in me as we chatted later on the flight that he would have done the same and that he was more embarrassed by the undue attention. Prof and I actually have few things in common, we are both in academia, I have a Ph.D in Electrical Engineering and teach Nano Electromagnetic Theory at the University of Mannittawiw.
“He said to me that he thinks that Nigerian youths need to stand up more for themselves than we do and he spoke to me about the ideals they tried to promote when he co-founded a secret society in his youth. I have read up on him now and know for sure that Wole Soyinka is a great man but I sadly was not taught about him in school. We exchanged contact information and I will certainly stay in touch.
“Please, note that I am on the Autism spectrum and need the view from the window to keep me from getting sick on the plane, hence my insisting on taking the window seat. Finally, Brother Tonye, the words on your lap are very inspiring, “everything you want is on the other side of not giving up,” he explained.
