A top guru of the ruling People’s Demonstration Party in the country sometimes ago in the nation capital of Abuja drove his car in a very rough manner into the car of a federal secretariat official at a cross road. The top political shot came out of his car and inspected the two cars involved in the accident.
His was not damaged, but the other car which happened to have been driven by the lady official was badly crushed. The PDP stalwart looked around to see if there was any policeman or any other law enforcement agent around. There was none. So, he went inside his car, sat down, and said to the lady as he started to drive away,
“Give me a ring and let me know how much it will cost you to repair your car. I will pay the bill”. Not knowing what to say the very confused lady asked the politician “What’s your phone number?”
“It is in the telephony directory” the heavy weight politician answered.
Those were days before the arrival of Global System Mobile Technology in Nigeria
“What is your name?” inquired the lady.
“Oh, it is in the telephone directory, too!” came the reply from the politician as he zoomed off before the lady could register the politician’s car plate number in her confused brain!
