Gbemi, a media personality, recently shared her experience at the hands of dispatch riders.
The newly appointed Group Vice President of Marketing for Wakanow shared a story on her Instagram account about a dispatch rider who was tasked with picking up food but took five packs from the delivery.
Gbemi interpreted the rider’s actions as a reflection of people’s hunger in Nigeria, suggesting that this could be the reason for such behavior.
Instagram users responded to the post by saying that hunger is no excuse for stealing or being unprofessional.
One user said: Even though, upon still 🙄 this is not an excuse to take what does not belongs to you 🤦♀️ Make person no try am with me o🙄I no dey use food play😂
Another one wrote: Your hunger no even make you take 1 pack na 5 pack Haba it’s not an excuse to take what isn’t yours na
While a user commented: Hunger shouldn’t be the reason why we shouldn’t maintain self respect and dignity, regardless of how hungry you are
A user wrote: He would have begged for food instead of stealing. No matter the hardship, stealing should never be an option.
