“So to me I saw a virtuous and humble woman, somebody who is not controlled by the wealth of the father; I saw a woman who is not moved by the riches of the father. One thing led to another, I developed interest in her and being a Personal Assistant to your boss you know it is difficult to approach your boss and say I want to marry your daughter but I took the bold step. One morning, I went to Her Excellency; I didn’t want to go to the governor because I was scared I didn’t know what to tell him.”

“So, one morning I went to her and said I wanted to see you and she asked me if there is any problem and I said I wanted to tell her something private and she said I should come back in the evening. In the evening when I went to see her behold my boss was there I didn’t know how to say what I wanted to say and His Excellency looked at me and asked me if anything was wrong, I said no that I came to see Her Excellency so he laughed and said we should go downstairs and when we got down, I told her that I want to get married to your daughter.”
