REV OKOLIE

we are all visitors in this world. Like a popular song writer said “this world is not my home. Am just a passer by”. Visitors come and go. So we all come and go. The question I want us all to ask ourselves this day is, what will people remember me for when i leave? The best way to be remembered is for good contribution to society, as our brother Mr Peter Anoms.

Why God decided to take him now, we don’t know. He knows best. May the gentle soul of our brother rest in the bosom of our LORD.

(collect the signed documents) like I told you that day, your husband is entitled to some insurance benefits, as it is right now, am afraid we won’t grant them to him.

 

MRS TWALE ANOMS

But I just signed that I have collected it.

 

MR AKPOFURE

yes. Without your signature I won’t be able to collect the benefits to replace the damaged car that was involved in the accident. The  car in his custody was damaged beyond repair so we need the benefit money to purchase a new one.

 

MRS TWALE ANOMS

But sir, my husband told me you insure the cars and the lives of your workers incase things like this happen. That was suppose to cover the damaged car.

 

MR AKPOFURE

well ma. I have given you all the company can and what your husband is entitled to. If you don’t mind I have a meeting to attend.

 

MRS TWALE ANOMS

(burst into tears) So my husband… So my husband is worth only twenty thousand naira to your company, after twenty years of Labouring tiredlessly for you? God pay you back for your kindness .

 

MR AKPOFURE

Madam, please leave my office!

 

MRS TWALE ANOMS

(stand up to leave. Tears flowing from her eyes) God bless you.

 

MR AKPOFURE

Thank you. Nonsense.  You think we run a charity organistation here.  ( Scene cuts as mrs Anoms leave mr Akpofures office).
