Woman gives N10k to good driver who asked for N2500 despite fuel hike

Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously reported that a woman based in Port Harcourt shared her emotional experience with a driver who was going through a hard time. The woman, identified as Chukwudi Mmesoma on Facebook, booked a ride from a park to her destination in a clean white Toyota Rav 4 car.

The driver, a man in his mid-50s, was courteous and friendly. He put on the AC for the rider despite the fuel price increase and even suggested a place where she could get some food. The driver waited patiently for Mmesoma for about 30 minutes while she bought her food.

Mmesoma said she felt sorry for him but did not pry into his matter. When they arrived at the destination, the driver checked the price, which was N2500. The woman decided to tip him generously and sent him N10,000 instead. The driver was so shocked and overwhelmed by the gesture that he was moved to tears.
