Aaliyah 4

What do you call him? Mr. Garba and Binta always got into a fight for one reason or another other, so she eventually took her children and left him. Garba is a proud man who feels superior to others; he hardly can learn from others or even take counsel; if you refuse to take his side, then you both may likely have a problem.

He had advised his daughter, who was married (Aliyah), to never spend a kobo in her husbands’ house. He intends to control her and her husband, but because they wouldn’t listen to him, he gets angry and picks a quarrel with them. He has threatened to take his daughter from his in-law if he wouldn’t do what he wants him to do; what do you call him?

 One day his former wife (Asabe) got sick, and he was informed, but he refused to visit or even check on her; that was the period he brought in another property of a woman called Wichard. Wichard was a divorcee with children, and she had a good job, so she was willing to spend all she could to keep Mr. Garba to herself. She was also asked to plead with Mr. Garba to visit his former wife in the hospital, who was sick and dying, but they both refused to go. Wichard supported Mr. Garba and blamed Asabe for all his misfortune. On the verge of pleasing Wichard, Mr. Garba stops his wasteful lifestyle and tries to be more responsible.

Tragedy stroke, and Asabe died, just like he did with his first wife Laraba; he didn’t attend the burial. The news of her death did not move him, but this time things took a different turn. He was only responsible to Wichard and would not have anyone confront her for any reason. Mr. Garba insists that all his children must do the bidding of Wichard, his wife. The children were already independent, and some were married, so they refused to heed that instruction, so he started to disown them one by one. What a man, what a father, what a life.

 Mr. Garba will always give a very long list to intending in-laws just to scare them from coming to take his daughters as wives, but because most of them already were part of the success story of his daughters, they were ready to take the risk. In a bid to make peace and be close to Mr. Garba, one of his in-laws got involved in a business deal with him, which was the greatest mistake of his life. Mr. Garba got him arrested and threatened to deal with him if he didn’t meet up as promised. He eventually got released but with so much threat as he complained that the property involved was for Wichard, his wife.

 Things got so bad and messed up as Wichard caused a lot of problems. It was from one problem to the other, one complaint to another, and a lot of disowning and re-owning. He complains about everything his children do; they lack home training, they lack culture, and nothing they do makes sense, except Wichard certifies it okay. He is ready to tell the world how useless he feels his children are, except you are ready to be the doll of Mr. Garba and his wife Wichard; you had no place in their lives. What you call him is a touching story of a father that will never appreciate the gift of children (God’s gift) but will trade them for money, self, and women. If you were to name this father, what would you call him?
