A lady recounts how she met a woman who is a commercial bus driver in Port Harcout and how she had to help her load her bus after her male colleagues refused to assist her.
A social media user, Ibi Kontein shared on her page that she met a woman commercial bus driver who later shared her story of how she ventured into the business after her husband died leaving behind 4 children.
Guys! My bus driver is a woman!! These nonsense men are now refusing to load for her. One said ‘madam night don come. Go give your husband food.’
Update: I am now loader/conductor! This bus must full tonight.
Bus was full!! I loaded complete! I should probably start looking at a different career path😂. And oh, her name is Madam Cele. Short for Celestine. We talked all the way from Airforce junction to Oilmill. Plot twist, her husband is dead! Left her with 4 boys. Bus was his own.
She took some money from his burial money and went to driving school, then picked up from where he had left off. She doesn’t have a phone so I gave her my number. Anytime I see her again, I’m paying for everybody’s seat. Thunder fire stereotypical misogynistic cowards!
I’ll keep looking out for her on that route. She said once she can borrow a phone, she’ll call me. Was even thinking of buying her something she can at least put SIM card inside. But now you’ve said so, I’ll tell the bread seller at that junction to look out for her and call me.

Some of her followers decided they want to buy a phone for the woman atleast to support her.
