Memory Lane old time at LEA Faki Road, T/Wada Kaduna a very humble dedicated and hard working student. Always taking FIRST POSITION, BEST STUDENT during his set, and former HEAD BOY also.
A promising leader, smiling and jovial then at Sabon Rai Baptist Church among play mates and team with the youths then.
God bless your live Joseph

Me: Daddy 45000, next week,zan siya takadu neh kuma za muyi tafiya a school kuma na yi broke(I want to buy some books, academic materials and were going on a field trip plus I'm broke) usually daddys soft spot for dropping money is either academic concerns or health concerns ... He gives the money with plenty extra extra self ..... But any other thing he says to take it out from my allowance .....

He'll start with ...

How have you been faring, 
Who gives you money for upkeep.
(Mind you this is just two weeks after I locked up ooo)
My response would be...
Ehhhn daddy I've been managing, I don't really want to disturb you because I know you don't have much money ....
(Inside my mind I'll be happy ehhhnnnn)
He'll scream and say who told me that ?
He hasn't been complaining ....
Have I ever told him I needed anything and he neglected me??
(Me self will now say noo humbly)
He's response will be
