One Nigerian lady Olasumbo has taken to social media to share the cunning method an okada rider employed to get her number.
Sharing on the microblogging platform, Twitter, Olasumbo claimed that she hired a bike to transport her to her destination but because of the shortage of naira in circulation, she decided to pay him with a transfer.
However, he did not get the credit alert immediately so he asked for her number to not make her wait until he received the payment.
The okada rider said he would call her later for a follow-up in case the money fails to go through.
Olasumbo was shocked when the man messaged her in Yoruba inquiring if he could take her out on a date.
She attributed the currency shortage to the CBN governor, Godwin Emefiele, and his naira redesign strategy.
“I took bike today and did transfer, bikeman did not get alert so he asked for my number so he does not keep me waiting. Bike man called me this evening and said: mo fe gbe e jade (i want to take you out) Emefiele you do this one.”
