‘Neat’ doughnut hawker turns viral sensation
The popular cliche “anything worth doing is what doing well” appears to be the watch word for a ‘Neat’ doughtnut seller who was a beneficiary of the Annie Idibia Care Foundation.
The middle-aged man, simply identified as “Mr White” is quickly becoming an Internet sensation following a post on Facebook celebrating him for his determination to succeed.
A Facebook user identified as Inibehe Effiong, shared photos of the neatly dressed man selling doughnuts in Akwa Ibom and wrote:
“I don’t know this man from Adam and I do not care the part of the country that he comes from.I am using this platform to celebrate his devotion to his trade and admirable sense of cleanliness.
“He sells doughnut around the Uyo metropolis in Akwa Ibom State. Please patronize him anywhere you see him.
“At a time that many Nigerians are seeking white collar jobs, the entrepreneurial spirit of this man deserves commendation. He has by his action given credence to the aphorism that there is dignity in labour.
“Instead of resorting to crime, he has proudly engaged in this business to cater for himself and his family. Anyone that sees this man should kindly connect him with me. I want to support his business with my widow’s mite.
“If you wish to join me in contributing financially to his business please indicate the amount (no matter how small) in Your comment. Thank you. PLEASE SHARE UNTIL IT GETS TO SOMEONE THAT KNOWS THIS MAN.”
As fate would have it, Annie Idibia, happened to know the man she has identified as Mr White. The Nollywood actress took to her Instagram page to reveal that he had been a student at her Cake and Pastries class during the Annie Idibia Care Foundation training in Awka Ibom.
Mr White’s uncommon attitude towards his chosen career has however gone viral on the social space, getting more shares and comments.
