Reuben Abati: Your Excellency, Daddy G.O and Baba Witch called while you were sleeping.

Reuben Abati: Your Excellency, Daddy G.O and Baba Witch called while you were sleeping.


GEJ: Oh my Daddies in the Lord? Why didn't you wake me? Don't you know I need some anointing to face Nigerians starting tomorrow?

Reuben: Your Excellency, this is no anointing matter o. Ask Oronto sir. They were seriously complaining about reduction in tithe and offering collection today.

GEJ: Reuben, this is not an academic conference. Don't complicate matters; what do you mean by tithe collection?

Reuben: I will explain, Your Excellency. They complained that their income has plummeted since Pius Adesanmi, that Sowore boy, and the other noisemakers have asked the people not to pay tithes if their pastors remain silent about the subsidy issue.

GEJ: Reuben, wetin be plume....? These are men of God and not plumbers you are talking about.

Reuben: Sorry, Your Excellency. I mean that their tithes and offering have reduced drastically.

GEJ: Oh! All you Oyinbo people sef. We zoologists don't speak big grammar. We keep it simple. But that’s not a problem; tell Daddy G.O and the other men of God that there is no cause for alarm. Meanwhile, you and Oronto should discuss with them and find out how much they are losing so we can cushion the effect of their silence.

Reuben: Consider it done, Your Excellency.
