Akpors’ father accompanied him to his school end-of-year awards party.
As they sat watching amidst loud ovations, the beneficiaries were called to the podium for their awards.
The following conversation ensued:
Announcer: Best student in sciences, the winner is Inem.
Father: (Applauds and eyes Akpors scornfully) See correct children!
Announcer: Best student in commercial studies; the winner is Ajoke.
Father: (Hisses and eyes Akpors) See correct children.
Announcer: Best student in Arts and the winner is Helen.
Father: (fuming with anger) See correct children!!.
And so, all the awards were presented without any going to Akpors.
At the end of the event, they left and went to the car park but as his dad got ready to start the car, the engine refused to respond.
He opened the bonnet and touched a few things but his efforts did not yield any response so they resorted to pushing it. Just as they got to the exit of the school, the rickety car sparked up.
Exhausted and profusely sweating, Akpors rested on the gate just as his mates were driving off with their parents in
Hummer, Jeep, Sequia, Infinity, Escalade, Bentley, Lincoln Navigator, Range Rover and other exotic cars.
All of a sudden, Akpors burst into laughter.
His puzzled father asked,’what’s so funny?’
Amidst teary eyes, Akpors responded, ‘SEE CORRECT FATHERS!’.
