Where should I start from ooo……
Few months after my wedding with Iyoaye, we decided that instead of both of us doing the business, I should return back to the church and continue to work there. I discussed with the Head Pastor and he was glad to re – absorb me. I resumed back to work there with speed and alacrity. But on the day I resumed back I was summoned to the meeting with the Church Board. After I entered I was ushered to sit down.
Head Pastor: Bro Collins, we are happy to have you back. Infact, the new Accountant just messed up our books and committed serious blunders.
Me: Thank you sir.
Elder Garba: The Accountant, I am happy that you are back to the church office. I hope this time around you will not “run” away again like you did the other time
Me: No sir. I wont run away.
Head Pastor: Accountant, you have to reconcile all the accounts from the very day you left to the last service. External Auditors from the
Main Church will be returning back next week to check back the books and let me tell you this; we were about planning to meet you when you called us if you can come back.
Me: I feel honoured sir.
Deacon Gbade: Pastor, hope this our new accountant won’t be chasing girls in the church?
Head Pastor: No!!!! even when he was with us the first time, he had a stainless record for not messing up with the ladies in this church. So I can vouchsafe him anywhere anytime.
Me: [(thinking) ti Pasito yii ba mo nnkan ti mo dan-wo (if Pastor knew what I did, he won’t be saying this)] I did not and will not do such.
Deacon Gbade: Ok. But accountant know that I am watching you.
