Her husband, Yibo Koko, who is a CEO of Rivers State Tourism Development Agency (RSTDA), celebrated his wife on social media for her kind gesture.
Sharing a picture of her with the 50 litres of petrol on LinkedIn, Yibo said she came by his office to give him the gift of love and hailed her for the gesture which is coming at a time there are long queues at filling stations for petrol.
Yibo said that when he wanted to hug his wife in appreciation of the gift, she told him to monetize the hug. He revealed that they have been together for 28 years – four years of dating and 24 years of marriage.
The overjoyed man disclosed that he not only monetised the hug but vowed to buy her a petrol station as a gift on their 24th wedding anniversary.
He wrote, “My dear wife came to my office yesterday and surprised me with a gift of 50 liters of petrol(gasoline).
“When I think of the almost non availability of petrol in lagos, the deserted filling stations, the unending queues, the fight and struggle to get into any of the stations selling petrol, I can’t begin to express my profound appreciation and gratitude to my wife for this highly inflammable gift of love.”
“As I gleefully approached to give her a hug in appreciation for my gift, she matter-of-factly told me to monetize the hug.”
“Haba! I told her to simmer down and remember the 60 tubers of yam I paid as bride price for her hand in marriage.”
Th”en she queried to know what 60 tubers of yam had to do with monetizing the hug, that after all she dated me for 4 years and this year will make it 24 years since we’ve been married, therefore, she’s been with me for 28 years and if I don’t behave myself she will take back her 50 litters of petrol and return the 60 tubers of yam.”
“I have not only monetized the hug, I have also declared that I will buy her a petrol station as gift on our 24th wedding anniversary.”
