''Oga thought I was joking and mentioned a figure thinking I was going to contest because it was almost all my salary, I just carried my phone and transferred it to him,'' part of the post read.
The woman went further to pay the salary of their children's lesson teacher to relieve her husband of mental stress.
''It was doing him like film, I then went ahead to pay the salary of our children's lesson teacher so that he would stop thinking about it.
''That's when I realised that he was doing so much without complaining. He sees it like his duty and even when the financial burden is too much, he struggles to pay without asking me.''
The thoughtful gesture left her husband surprised and happy.
''He was so surprised and happy, I know that my money is just a fraction of what he brings but he felt like I gave him millions.
''I then told him that I am putting in the effort to make more money so that I can still reduce his stress. He didn't marry a responsibility, he married a helper and he should be feeling more relaxed than when he was single,'' the post added.
The account shared on the Facebook page of Footprint TV has garnered commentary from social media users.

Ghanaian Girl Giving Shoes to Poor Kids
In a separate story, a 12-year-old Ghanaian in Chicago, Kerry Koranteng, is impacting the lives of deprived children in Ghana by providing them with shoes to prevent them from walking barefooted.
Through her foundation, Kerry K Foundation, and with support from a local nonprofit, the tweenager sends the shoes she collects back home to Ghana to cover the feet of underprivileged children.
Koranteng told CBS News that she was inspired by a trip to visit her family in Ghana when she was eight years old.
