Oando PLC pulls PR stunt on Twitter

Developing story of an Oando Intern — Yinka Fajimite

Yinka Fajimite

Sometimes in October, there was this Twitter phenomenon where people asked for goods, services, favours in payment of number of RTs.

A lady reported that via RTs she got all the things needed for her wedding without spending a dime on it. Good you say?

Then, there was this daring young man, Mr Olayinka Fajimite, who goes by the handle @lordphaj3804 on Twitter. Who had asked Oando_PLC “how many RTs for a job?”

Oando generously replied and said, they don’t do RTs for a job but they can for a 1-month Internship.

Through the help of the good people of Twitter, Yinka was able to secure the number of RTs requested. Now, the question arises? What kind of role would he be placed to work in…petrol attendant doesn’t sound so exciting.

Then Oando graciously responded to say that they would not be making him a Petrol Attendant.

Only for us to wake up to this:

What went wrong? Why did Oando lie to us (Twitter Users)?

This went on for a while with people asking questions and getting confused such as:

While some Twitter Influencers like Chidi Okereke and Osi_suave were still buckling up to question Oando.

The intern released this:

Alas! it was all a prank!

Thank you Oando. Thank you Twitter for a dream come true.

Now we can return to our regular banter on twitter :)
