A Nigerian man, Tunde Omotoye, has taken to Twitter to share that his Apple watch that could not be repaired in Toronto got repaired in computer village, Lagos, Nigeria.
According to him, the watch had passed the warranty period from the manufacturer (Apple) and couldn’t be replaced. He allegedly sent the watch to computer village in Lagos and in an interesting turn of events, it got fixed.
Tunde stated that his friend Dimeji did the repairs for him. According to him, he has known Dimeji for 8 years and he has helped fix a number of phones. He said that Dimeji assured him that he would be able to fix the Apple watch when he told him about it.
@nkiruka_c: “Seeing so many “they could not fix” on this tweet, now I have a second thought ; what if this is a strategy for you to just get another gadget “especially” when it’s pass warranty period? How is it possible they make gadgets they can’t possibly fix when it’s faulty?”
@Adedoyinszn: “Nigerians with a lot of hidden potential”
@samuelgmusic: “Aa africans let’s elevate our mindset and set high standards.. let’s also invent our own.. and don’t tell me u honestly believe that the ppl who created the product couldn’t really fix it? It’s time we stop celebrating fixing and start celebrating innovation and creation..”
@OluwaTmayde: “You people in the abroad, if you have faulty gadgets, don’t dispose them. Make una send am come back Nigeria. If we can’t get it fixed we can at least use the good parts to fix other parts”
@emeokine: “We are talented here in Nigeria. What we need is a conducive environment, good governance and stabilized economy, Omo you go see where guys go dey reason well dey invent things.”
@realAhmedFunsho: “Apple Store’s engineers use machine to see if it’s fixable, and if the machine says no, no further manual touch lol. Ikeja boys in CV no dey use machine, they use hands for gadget surgery and fix them”
