Pathetic Story Of A Former Fashion Designer Who Now Sell Oranges For Survival – [Videos & Photo]



A Nigerian entrepreneur and counsellor identified as Okikiola on the microblogging site, Twitter, shared a touching story of a man he met selling oranges under the rain in Lagos.

According to Okikiola in a thread of tweets on his social account on Thursday, September 10, he was driving through Oshodi Isale to FRS when he saw the woman standing under the rain with a bag of orange close to her.

Okikiola noted that he was forced to stop and check on the woman after seeing her in that pitiable condition. According to him, his first thought was that she is not mentally balanced.

He noted further that the situation moved him to tears after getting to know that all her oranges only cost N1,200.

Okikiola tweeted; “So i was driving to FRS office yesterday morning along oshodi isale, close to lastma office, and i saw a woman under the rain shivering Cold face, at first sight i thought she wasn’t ok psychologically and i drove past her, at a second glance via the side mirror!!!”

“I noticed there was a sack close to her, i slowed down and i kept wondering why was she was under the rain, so i parked, and trekked back to her, i saw it was a sack full of oranges, and she had sold only one, the #50 naira was right on top of the oranges

I moved close and asked her, “madam are you selling this? ” She said yes, i asked how much is the whole sack? She said #1200 naira, i was lost for words Disappointed face i said to myself “1200?” I had no cash on me so i promised i was going to come back to her

I went back to my car, and i couldn’t just hold back the tears, it kept rolling down my cheeks, as i looked up to thank GOD for all the blessings i over looked and forgot to appreciate, for all the goodness and mercies i get despite my sporadic sins

I was in no way better than this woman, afterall she’s outspoken, all through my conversations with her, she never replied with broken English, however, i went back to her and gave her my token, i was more concerned with her leaving the rain as she was really shivering,”
