An Edo Man invited his friends for his mother’s burial. After lowering the coffin, the family put yam, rice, meat etc, into the grave in line with tradition.

A Hausa Man asked why? The Edo man smiled and said,”According to our tradition, the dead go on a long journey and need all the food items they can get”. The Hausa man dropped N200,000 inside and said, “When the food finish, buy more”. The Yoruba man dropped N150,000 and said, “Add this in case it’s not enough.”The GBAGYI man smiled and brought out his cheque book and wrote a cheque of N400,000, dropped it in the coffin and took the N150,000 notes as change, then said “AYAH” withdraw it when you reach dia oooo!!.. It is going to be a dangerous journey, we don’t know how many robbers are out there and afterall we are in a cashless economy. Travel well oooo!
