Man Makes Strong Case For Pure Water Hawkers by Smoke2015: 2:46pm On Mar 01, 2019
A Nigerian man, who identifies himself as King Millie on Twitter has made a strong case for pure water sellers, admonishing Nigerians to be kinder to them.

In a series of threaded tweets, the young guy who describes himself as a blogger and OAP breaks down the rigours and hardship satchet water popularly known as pure water sellers in this clime have to endure, only to earn a meagre N40.00. Some times, they  even run into debt and have to pay a fine of N5000 where they are caught by law enforcement agents.

He suggests that instead of just giving money to 'able bodies beggers', these pure water hawkers are a better fit for benevolence, given how hard they work  and make very little daily.

Read his thread(a series of connected Tweets from one person) below:

According to pure water sellers. Sometimes, It Takes About 6 Hours To Sell 20 Sachets Of Water Which Amounts To A Total Of N200 (less than 1Dollar).
From The N200, The Profit Is Only About N40 As The Pure Water Sellers Have To Pay Ice block Which Was Used To Cool The Water.

Bottom line Is That Some Of Them Make Only N40 In 6 Hours Of Hustling Under The Hot Sun, Risking Their Lives On Major Roads And Always At The Mercy Of The Environmental Protection Board Who Whip Them With Cane When Caught; And Fine Them N5,000 when they are caught.

Sadly, Passengers And Drivers Reach The Traffic Stops, They Prefer To Dash N100, N200 Or Even N500 To Beggars And Fake Sufferers Who Sometimes Make About N1,500 A Day Doing Nothing But Begging, Leaving Them Richer And Safer Than The Pure Water Sellers Who Are Entrepreneurs...

So When Next You Are At A Traffic Stop, Please:
1. Dash The Pure Water Seller Instead
2. Buy Pure Water To Patronize Them And If The Change Is (N10, Or Even N20, You Can Leave It With Them)
3. Say Something Nice To Them. Greet Them, Encourage Them.

Slow Down, Don't Knock Them Down.
5. Even If You Wont Buy The Pure Water, If They Ask You To Buy, Rather Than Ignoring Them And Facing Front As If They Are Not Humans, You Can Look At Them, Smile And Say "Thank You".


Such an eye opening thread. So kind of him!

THEY MAKE ABOVE 40 NAIRA.

A BAG OF ICE COLD SACHET WATER IS RETAILED TO THEM FOR 80 NAIRA OR LESS.

A BAG CONTAINS 20 SACHET WATERS.

THESE GUYS SELL FOR 10 NAIRA EACH AND MAKE 200 NAIRA PER BAG.

THEIR PROFIT IS 120 NAIRA.

I REPEAT, NO NIGERIAN WILL RISK HIS LIFE LIKE THEY DO FOR 40 NAIRA.




I SUPPORT THE CALL TO SHOW AN EXTRA LOVE AND CARE TO THESE GUYS.

Try to recover from the election pains. Not all Almajiris voted. Again, some voted for your candidate as well. Its not a straight jacket.
