A man who resides in Rivers state, has revealed how a kind gesture was rejected by a beggar whom he wanted to help. Chidi, took to Twitter to tell Nigerians the story, said he could remember when he offered a beggar in Port-Harcourt City the sum of N50 but the alms was returned to him by the man, who reportedly held on to his cloth and challenged him for daring to give such an amount.
Chidi stated that the beggar angrily returned the N50 and insisted that the only amount he can take is from N500 upwards.
According to Chidi, he was shocked to his feet that ‘ beggars now have a choice’, so he decided to narrate his ordeal on Twitter, where he added that it happened in a part of the state called slutter. He wrote: “Some street beggars have upgraded, i gave this guy 50naira and this guy held me and said i should take my 50naira back, he only collects 500naira upward.” See his tweets:
