Nigerian Mother Turns Down ₦40,000 Gift from University Daughter, Seeks to Know Her Source of Wealth

  • A Nigeria mother recently questioned her university student daughter’s source of income after she sent a N40,000 gift from her
  • In the clip, she disclosed that her attempt to financially assist her mother was met with scepticism over her character
  • Despite her claims of earning while studying, the mother’s doubts led her to refund the transfer, a development the daughter later confirmed in her post’s comments

In a surprising turn of events, a video surfaced online showing a Nigerian university student’s mother rejecting a N40,000 monetary gift.

The social media post revealed the mother’s suspicion about her daughter’s earnings, given her student status without employment.
