Dad who had a sleepless night, “not because anyone is on a sick bed or not healthy among the family, but everyone in our house is full of joy including the Rat inside the cupboard of our kitchen. I am ure even the worms inside our stomach will rejoice with us that day, “no doubt”.
Dad who has woken up around 5 O. clock testing different cloths, asking Mom to know the one that fit him most to meet Lafeunwa in his office. After checking and testing again and again, he finally got one which Mom persuaded him to wear to his office. It’s a very nice Purple and White polo shirt and a black Trouser which makes him look so smart and adorable, he was also putting on a black face cap. You really need to see how cute and smart Dad Is looking today. He is looking like a guy of under 20, who is ready to participate in an Olympic competition.
When it was exactly 9 O, clock, Dad is already by the gate of Lafeunwa’s office. He quickly approach the receptionist with the card given to him the last time Lafeunwa pay us a visit. You can sit down sir the receptionist said to my Dad, let me give him a call maybe he is not busy at this moment, which the receptionist did immediately and ask my Dad to go into his office.
