The Deadlock: Part 7

By Kay Lord

 


 

Ohhh that’s great. Indeed Lagos is really buzzy…    

 

Your husband spoke so highly of you Mrs Osogbe. He said you are a brilliant insurance broker here in Lagos…

 

Erica: Really?…I am flattered…I thank him for telling you that but I wish I can speak so highly of him like that right now…not that he’s not good at what he does here at Renato but I wish he can be that good to us like that at home.

 

 

BM: Oh never mind, men would always be men sometimes, don’t take it to heart Mrs. Osogbe…  

Mrs… Errmmmm

Ranberg… Just call me Hannah…    

 

 

Okay Mrs. Ran… Ohhh… Hannah, you know not all men are mean. My husband is a good man, just that he’s mean when it comes to money. Not that he doesn’t have the money but he rather waste it on other people than me, his wife…can you imagine I ask him to buy me a new car and he refused saying my old car is still okay… (thinking… I am going to spoil his parade here with one of his colleagues…if he thinks he can make me unhappy at home, I will also make him look bad with one of his colleagues)…

 

Never mind, I am sure he would still get it for you…(whispers in Erica’s ear..) I will help you nudge him….its been nice meeting you.

 

Same here Mrs….Hannah..  

 

 

Monday morning at the Board room of Renato Oil & Gas, Mrs Randberg is briefing the Chairman, other board members and the MD of her encounter and conversation with both Fred and Nosa’s wives. She confidently and without hesitation told them Fredrick Coker has a more stable and settled family life than Nosa, therefore it would be better to appoint him as the next MD of Renato Nigeria.
