It wasn’t cheap: Nigerian woman fixes community transformer, pays one month’s electricity bill

A Nigerian woman has gotten tremendous praise and prayers online after a revelation of her fixing her community transformer was brought to the limelight.

The woman, identified as Joy Oyaghiri-Fagbemi, hails from Omokwa Community in Abua/Odual LGA, Rivers State.

According to Gazelle News, she went to her community to confirm their claims and immediately started working on the situation when she saw they had no light and their transformer was also bad.

The generous woman fixed their transformer and paid for one month’s electricity bills.

“I paid for the transformer to be fixed, which wasn’t cheap. I paid for reconnection back to the LGA grid, and paid for one month worth of electricity bills. All this from my pocket. The joy I saw in the faces of men, women and youths of my community, the text messages of gratitude, was truly humbling,” she recounted.
