The landlord, a true story.

9

Yesterday, at his six-flats building in Lugbe, Abuja, not one tenant was able to pay anything from their outstanding rent.

One tenant asked AEDC to disconnect his light to prevent harassment over light bills. Another packed up his gas cooker and began using his neighbor’s charcoal stove one floor below to cook. A couple who lost a relation had no money to go for the burial.

When the retiree landlord returned down stairs, he sat on a chair and was speechless for hours thinking about his children’s school fees that were due. “Quo Vadis Nigeria?” He finally asked, rethorically. (©pda.files)
