The hotel also provided a handbook on the people and government of the Gambia. I read that the Republic of The Gambia is a country in West Africa that is almost surrounded by Senegal except to the western coastline along the Atlantic Ocean.

Its official language is English while Madinka, Fula, Wolof, Serer and Jola were regarded as national languages.

With a land area of 10,689 km2 and a population of 2,051,363 (according to 2017 estimate), Gambia is certainly the smallest country on the coast of West Africa. While Banjul is the capital, the largest cities are Serekunda and Brikama.

Politically, The Gambia was made a part of the British Empire on May 25, 1765. The country gained independence under the leadership of Dauda Jawara in 1965 (after over two hundred years of colonial rule). Yahya Jammeh seized power in 1994, but presently, Adama Barrow was at the helms of affairs.

Within the two weeks we were there, we visited interesting places including Bijilo Forest Park, River Gambia National Park and the National Museum at Independence Drive in Banjul. By the time we returned to Lagos, I had no doubt that I had experienced something that would forever remain indelible in my mind.

Another pleasant surprise awaited me as soon as we were driven away from the Lagos Airport. The car sent by Otunba drove off to Off Association Avenue, Ilupeju.

A cream color duplex was at the end of Johnson Street. The driver handed a bunch of keys to me.

‘Otunba said I should give you this. This place is your new home.’

Of course, I was pleasantly surprised. From the knowing looks on the face of Ruth, I knew she was privy to that information and surprise package. I immediately called my father-in-law to thank him for all he had been doing.

‘You’re my son-in-law now, which is like my son,’ he replied. ‘Just make sure you take care of your wife. Be a loving husband.’

I didn’t need anyone to tell me that, but I nodded in agreement all the same. ‘She will forever remain the love of my life, sir,’ I said.

The two cars that were gifted to us during the wedding – a BMW and a Mercedes Benz – were already parked in the compound. The new home had five bedrooms in all, apart from the three rooms in the boys’ quarters.

There were two sitting-rooms: one downstairs and another one upstairs. For Ruth and me, it was a large place as we were just starting a family. But then, I remembered that I had just married the daughter of a billionaire.


Since we arrived on Friday, we still had two days to relax at our new home before we resumed work on Monday. Now, the duplex was already well-furnished. Apart from the comfortable settees, there was sixty-inch Samsung flat screen in the sitting with satellite connection.

Even the kitchen had all the utensils that were needed to bring sumptuous cuisine to life. From the gas cooker to the shelves and cupboards, everything was set. My things were still at my Agege apartment.

Now, I wondered what to do with them, especially the furniture. My rent would not be due till another six months, so those things might just remain there for now.

I played the perfect husband, waking her up with kisses and staying with her – even assisting her - in the kitchen.

‘I’ll need a domestic help,’ she said. ‘No one will cook for my darling but me. However, I need someone to do the washing and the general cleaning of the house.’

‘You need a house boy?’

She shook her head. ‘I prefer a female, someone who will wash, clean the house and assist in the kitchen.’

I nodded. She had a point there.

‘I’ll tell mum about it, so that she would get me a good hand,’ she asserted.

I nodded again. ‘That will be no problem.’

She shook her head. ‘I prefer a female, someone who will wash, clean the house and assist in the kitchen.’

I nodded. She had a point there.

‘I’ll tell mum about it, so that she would get me a good hand,’ she asserted.

I nodded again. ‘That will be no problem.’

That afternoon, she called her mother. I was bemused as she talked excitedly to her mother on the phone. They talked for what I considered a long time.

After the telephone conversation, she turned to me with a smile.

‘She has agreed,’ she said. ‘As a matter of fact, she’s sending someone over right now.’

I looked surprised. ‘So fast?’

‘Yes. She’s actually sending one of the maids in the house over for now.’

A couple of hours later, the bell at the gate sounded. I went there to see who it was. Titi was the one. She had a big bag in her hand and a big smile on her face.

‘Uncle,’ she greeted familiarly, coming to give me a big hug.

‘Hello Titi. How’re you?’

‘Fine. I’m so happy big mummy has sent me here. I’m glad to be working for Aunty Ruth again.’

I nodded at her. ‘You’re welcome.’

Ruth gave her one of the bedrooms downstairs.

For now, all the rooms in the BQ remained locked.

It didn’t take me long to realize that Titi was hardworking. She was efficient in her work and I could see why my mother-in-law had sent her.

She waited on Ruth as if she was her personal nurse. Now, I knew that I had married a princess.
On Sunday morning, I looked around for a church where we would be worshipping.

As a single guy, I was always fervent in the things of the Lord. Now, as a married person, I must not derail from that lofty path. In the afternoon, I drove Ruth’s Corolla, in her company, to pay a visit to her parents.

We would have gone the previous day but Otunba was on a trip and did not return home until late in the night.

I prostrated flat to greet my father-in-law.

‘Ah, Frank, how’re you?’ he greeted amiably, extending his right hand for a hand shake after I had got up.

I took the hand genially.

‘Thank you so much, sir, for all you’re doing.’

‘It’s God we should thank. If I don’t do it for my son-in-law, who will I do it for?’

The Daniels feted us to a feast. There were so much to eat and drink, but I must still be modest in all I did. We were in the house until after eight in the evening before we left.

Back at our Ilupeju home, Titi was anxiously waiting for her mistress.

‘I was beginning to get worried that you stayed out late,’ she said as soon as we got down from the car.

Ruth smiled. ‘Mum and dad would hardly see us go.’

There was no need to eat any other meal that evening as we were already full. By ten p.m., we were in bed.

The following day was Monday and I would be resuming work. Just as Ruth lay cuddled in my arms, I got a call from Otunba.

There was no need to eat any other meal that evening as we were already full. By ten p.m., we were in bed. The following day was Monday and I would be resuming work.

Just as Ruth lay cuddled in my arms, I got a call from Otunba.

‘Will you like to be deployed to the Head Office, or will you still like to be working at the depot at Sagamu?’ he asked, straight-to-the–point.

I had not thought of anything like that, so I had to think fast.

‘I’m okay with the depot, sir.’

‘I like that answer,’ he replied. ‘In fact, you should remain there. Since you resumed there, business has improved tremendously and I must commend you on that. The only thing is, now that you’re freshly married, you can be closing by four o’clock. You can also skip working on Saturday, for now, so that you can have good time with your wife.’

I was impressed. ‘Oh, thank you so much, sir.’

‘Alright. Good night.’

‘Good night, sir. Thanks a lot, sir.’ The line was disconnected.

‘Did he give you another week of leave?’ Ruth asked cheekily.

I smacked her playfully on the bum. ‘No, but he wants me to be closing on time and to have Saturdays off so that I can take good care of you.’

She climbed on me with kisses. ‘Well, when will you start taking good care of me?’

I smiled. ‘I thought I’ve started doing that already.’

She remained on top of me. ‘I want more of it.’

I nodded. ‘And you’ll get it.’

‘Treat me like your baby,’ she cooed.

‘Like my baby? You’re my baby!’

Throughout that night, just as I had been doing since the night of the wedding, I made sure I took ‘good care’ of care.

I woke up six in the morning, which was waking up late.

I had to dash to the bathroom to have a bath. I hated getting to work late, but it was like that Monday morning would be an exception.

My wife got up to have her bath too but she took things at her pace.

Downstairs, a breakfast of toast bread and tea was waiting. Titi would not be found wanting in such regard. I took the meal briskly.

‘You can take the Corolla to your office,’ Ruth said, ‘since the new cars are yet to have plate numbers and some documents.’

My official car was in my former residence and I had not been chance to bring it.

‘Oh, no, I wouldn’t want to inconvenience you,’ I said quickly.

‘It’s okay. I’ll take cab to work. My own working place is not far like yours.’

She had a point there. ‘Alright. Thanks a lot.’
‘Must you thank me?’

I smiled warmly at her. What a wife I had got!
