MumZee: Freezers, microwaves are luxuries in Nigerian homes

The Nigerian National Petroleum Company Limited (NNPC Ltd) has stepped forward to gift a Nigerian lady, known on social media as #_Debbie_OA, a petrol voucher worth N200,000. This generous offer comes following the widespread attention her personal story garnered online.

The story of #_Debbie_OA, who recently revealed on social media that she wakes up at 4.50 am daily to prepare food for her husband, has touched the hearts of many. Amidst the flurry of opinions and discussions, NNPC Ltd announced its support via a tweet from its official handle on Saturday. The tweet, with over 4.2 million views, expressed admiration for her dedication, stating, “Hello #_Debbie_OA, we love your amazing love story, and we would like to gift you a free N200,000 PMS voucher redeemable at any of our 900+ retail stations nationwide. This will ensure that Mummy Zee has #EnergyforToday and #EnergyforTomorrow.”

The viral tweet that sparked this chain of events read, “I’ve always been too lazy to wake up and get his lunch ready. But the day he told me a colleague brought two spoons so he’ll eat with her, was the day I set my alarm for 4:50 a.m.” This candid confession led to a heated debate among netizens, with some criticizing her actions and others praising her commitment to her marriage.

In addition to NNPC Ltd’s generous gesture, Infinix Nigeria, a prominent smartphone company, also stepped in to offer #_Debbie_OA and her husband the latest Infinix Hot 40 device. The company reached out via Twitter, highlighting their appreciation for her using one of their phones and inviting her to experience their latest model.
