If youu waste my water may thunder strike you and render you useless for your parents,,
That was the usual language of Mr orakwe, a 65 years old pensioner who retired from the civil service as a driver, He retired from the civil five years ago after attaining the compulsory retirement age of sixty ,
He had tried his hands on several business but acquire a massive land where he built a boys quarter where he lived with his family and also built a twenty room apartment which was all rented out to tenants.
He constructed a public tap where people from far and near came to fetch for añ exorbitant price. He did all these from the gratuity he collected after retirement which ran into millions of naira.
He was popularly called “BABA ORAKWE,, and he proudly answered whenever he was called,
He tormented his tenants and made life unbearable for them. At a particular meeting that he had called on a Monday morning he spelt out various unbearable rules to them.
“I HAVE CALLED THIS MEETING FOR ME TO SPELL OUT THE NEW RULES AND REGULATION THAT YOU ALL MUST ABIDE BY IF TRULY YOU STILL WANT TO REMAIN IN BABA ORAKWE’S HOUSE.THESE MAYBE SLIGHTLY DIFFERENT FROM THE ONES YOU WERE TOLD WHEN YOU MOVED IN BUT BE REST ASSURED THAT ALL IS FOR A BETTER CO EXISTENCE AMONG US ALL.”he said..
BABA ORAKWE, please make it snappy , you were supposed to have issue a prior notice to this but you just started knocking on our door this morning for a rather too emergency meeting.
Please make do because we all have our businesses to attend to’, (the new tenant who always sounded like a businessman said)
“I KNOW YOU THIS STUPID OMO IBO WILL NEVER BE PATIENT, YOU TALK AS IF YOU ARE THE ONLY ONE THAT IS WORKING OR THAT EVER WORKED. I WORKED WITH THE GOVERNMENT FOR THIRTY FIVE YEARS AND STILL ATTEND TO THE MEETING MY LAND LORD CALLED ANYTIME OF THE DAY. WE EVEN SOMETIMES SPEND THE WHOLE DAY IN MEETING AND THE GOVERNMENT UNDERSTANDS. WHY IS YOURS SO DIFFERENT?” he snapped back at uche angrily.
“if you don’t say what you have to say, i might as well leave this minutes, This is Monday morning and you can’t use yours to disturb mine,” uche raved, threatening to leave the meeting.
“YOU LEAVE AND YOU WILL FIND YOUR LOADS WAITING FOR YOU OUTSIDE BY THE TIME YOU RETURN,the land lord shouted..
“Try it and you will regret ever building a house in your life,”uche said angrily.
“baba, please, go on, we all have a appointment to keep with,” the majority of the tenants pressurized.
“Okay, since you all are too busy to have a meeting with your landlord. I shall spell out the most important first and the rest can come later .
Henceforth, all tenants must be in by six pm and nobody leaves before eight a.m. The gate shall be under locks and key to ensure strict adherence. We shall see later for the remaining “he said and worked out for the meeting,
“You are a joker, if you try this with others and it worked out for you , it won’t work with this present set tenants,” Uche and some other tenants barked loudly.
”Can you imagine the drunk? Mrs ademola, the single parent of two retorted.
”He is definitely mad”” others muttered and they all left for there various places of work.
