Never can tell

Updated on May 18, 2010

Jude was my personal driver, he occupied one bedroom in my three bedroom boy’s quarter and worked for me on a fifty dollars monthly allowance and he met his wife Edith in my house. Edith was our maid and chief cook, their wedding though a low was attended by couple of my close friends, about twelve of us were in attendance.

I trusted Jude with my family’s security so he had access to almost all my personal threats so most people who believed that he was a close relative, a cousin or even my brother were not wrong. Jude drives my Limousine and is always seen around every corner though a gentle man but a little bit flamboyant. He runs all my personal and private errands, he knows a bit of who i talk to on a daily and was actually circling in my circle.

One good turn they say deserves another so in return for my trust, he asked me to be the godfather of his son, to me, it was a great honour and i vowed to be a godfather to her just as the Bible stipulates. My relationship with Jude was more than that of an employee and a boss so you could imagine why he was able to drop his three kids every morning in a private school.

One good turn they say deserves another so in return for my trust, he asked me to be the godfather of his son, to me, it was a great honor and i vowed to be a godfather to her just as the Bible stipulates. My relationship with Jude was more than that of an employee and a boss so you could imagine why he was able to drop his three kids every morning in a private school.

My foundation sees to the good of the less privilege and i have helped so many people in my life, strangers comes to me with different kinds of problems and among my friends were couple of celebrities and names that makes you feel like an underdog were always in my guest’s list no matter what kind of function.

One thing about Jude was that he is humble and the Boss’s confidant, he never showed any sign of unhappiness and carries out his duties with utmost perfection so it was not a surprise when he was voted the worker of the year besides twenty years of service is no child’s play, he has been around me from the pick.

The year 1990 was a turning point for him and for each member of my family.


I have set up so many men and women in different aspects of life so my wife and i were pleased to package this for Jude but he was reluctant to accept it at first. No one will think twice about accepting a duplex as a gift in the Government Residential Area and fifty thousand dollars but it took hours of conviction for Jude to accept this gift from us. To him, hanging around me as a driver is more lucrative, he might seem a bit foolish but we all don’t think alike.

Three months after he moved into his new house and began his new life, i made him a general distributor in my company ‘Harry Beverages’.

You see, to me it is profitable in every sense to help a fellow man especially those with great potentials. So it took Jude not more than couple of months to expand and within months, he was able to create a distinctive distributive network, something my entire management could not achieve in ten years of operation, my products were all over the globe so i wasn’t surprise when the Chinese came knocking at my door.

How do i show this humble man that i appreciate his initiatives and innovations? You see, i am a Businessman so making him my partner was simply Business. I was not wrong taking this decision because the fruit was substantial as we have these in our racket.

Sometimes, it takes us a life time to understand why certain things happen to us but the fact is that we understand why the moment it ever happen that is why it is very good to be kind to people because you never can tell.

Jude my best friend and Business partner had a wish the day i offered him a house as a gift.

“If it will please God, let me never part with you sir” This was his wish though we all considered it a feeling of a loyal and obedient servant but we were wrong, we became business partners but that doesn’t mean that we will not part.

Just wedded...

It was a colorful and glamorous wedding, i saw the joy in my partners face as we watched my son and his daughter exchange vows. His wish finally came true.
