Christmas Gift

My neighbor came to my apartment this morning telling me that she was heading somewhere. She said one of their political party leaders wanted to give them Christmas gifts, and they were asked to come with persons who would also benefit. (I guess she wanted to join her and take part in the Christmas gifts ). "Okay, Ma", I said as I went back to my bed because I wasn't ready to go anywhere. So she left.

In less than 30 minutes, there was a knock on my door. It was my neighbor again. "Ma, you are back so early?" I asked. "No, mind the man. E say make we carry people come say e wan share Christmas gifts. I don call the people wey go follow me go o na im I just receive call from the man."

She continued talking. "E say person call to tell am say people don full the venue dey wait for Christmas gifts.

E say nooooooooooo! E no want crowd o"."What was he expecting before when he said he wanted to give Christmas gifts?" I asked. "No mind!" She exclaimed."E say make I just come collect my own for him place jeje", she said. "I reach there nah, nah one rubber of rice he carry give me". I get money pass am! She vented! . "Did you collect the rice? I asked. "Yes nah!", She said. I tried not to laugh but I couldn't hold it 不不不

Now the person she called is calling her on the phone to find out how far with the Christmas gifts.

"The man no do anything again o! He say e no want crowd..." 不不不 On a more serious note, when you tell people to come for Christmas gifts in this economy what are expecting; two or three persons? For free suntin, no try my country people o! Na one person go call another, wey go call another, wey go call another, before you know, people go full ground! 不不不
