“N10,000 is too much for your Father” By Olotu Olufeyisan
This is a true life story, not a tale.
Daughter: Mummy, please, help me manage this N20,000, when I get to Lagos I will send something again. (and she gave her mother N20,000 and put another N10,000 inside envelope and drop it under the pillow on the bed).
Mother: Thank you my daughter, but what about the one you put under the pillow on the bed?
Daughter: I want to give that to my father
Mother: How much is that?
Daughter: N10,000, mummy
Mother: Haa, is that not too much for your father. Do you think he needs money? N5,000 is okay for him.
Daughter: Mummy are you sure N5,000 is okay for him?
Mother: Yes. After all he just collected his N20,000 Pension Allowance on Friday.
Daughter: Thank you for the advice mummy (she then removed N5,000 from the money and put it back into her bag.) Picked the envelope, left her mother’s room and went to meet her father in the sitting room.
Daughter: Daddy, I am going back to Lagos. Please, take this token from me, sir.
Father: How much is that? (The father asked without collecting the money from her.
Daughter: N5,000 Daddy, she replied.
Father: Thank you my daughter, please, go and add it to the money you gave to your mother.(though the father was not aware of the amount she gave to her mother). Don’t you know that I was about to enter the room when your mother was advising you that N10,000 is too much for me.
So N10,000 is too much for me now but it was not too much for me when I was single handedly responsible for your school fees from your Elementary school to your Second degree and paying your hostel fee in the secondary school and your pocket money throughout your University Education.
Please, I don’t need money as she rightly said.
Daughter: Crying, and went back to meet her mother in the room. Mummy, you see what you have caused now, after I have given you N20,000 you said N10,000 is too much for my father.
Mothers, please allow and advise your children to care and love their fathers too.
Most especially those fathers that denied themselves the comforts of life to ensure their children did not lack and are properly cared for.
_*For all mothers.
