I continued listening to music as the motor speed off, before we got to Ihievbe police stop us for road and of course they collect fifty naira as usual, their daily payment but those guys they enjoy oh, imagine if they collect fifty naira for every motor wey they pass by the end of the day them don get feeding money be that and at the end of the month them carry their salary go use buy land for Otueke, i wonder whether them no they sleep wey them go they road by this early morning.
We enter Auchi and everywhere was lively, i was even surprise to see so many people awake by this time of the day, well they really obey the word “no food for lazy man” so everybody gat to hussle for food or remain in bed with no food.
Motor drop us for AP filling station so i enter okada go where i go enter bus go Portharcourt, i reach there them say #3200, i was surprise because last time i check it was #2800 or maybe fuel don increase again? I paid for the ticket because i have no other choise oh, i nor want enter bending bending so its better i just go direct.
After like ten minutes our bus don full, they charge me extra five hundred naira for my garri, as we enter road they go portharcourt i look at my left hand and saw Auchi Polytechnic na that school i be wan go before but too much wahala too they.
On our way to portharcourt i took out my phone and call Mercy.
