One day the German brought in awrecked door for repair. He uses this opportunity to inquire secretly how much this man is collecting each month. The Igbo laugh & said “Or-ibo look is not how much I collect but every day I serve with sincerity, I go to bed happily. But if you still want to know my salary, I will tell you it’s #8000.”
