Businesswoman says she wants to end business

Legit.ng previously reported that it was a trying time for many people due to Nigeria's economic situation and political uncertainty, and entrepreneurs who operate online businesses were not exempted.

An Instagram vendor selling footwear shared a video via her business page, imploring everyone to purchase her goods. She said, amidst tears, that she was fed up with the whole situation and was willing to sell her goods at any price because she wanted to close the business, and she didn't want to give it all out or have them destroyed.

In her words: "Please in the name of God, if you need anything from my page I beg you please just buy I am begging you. Even if you don't need it, if it is something you can give out, buy. You can pay any amount you want to pay. I just want to put an end to the business; I am not doing again and I have so much stock I cannot go and give everything out and I am choked, I don't want to go and destroy them."
