A Sterling Goat

 

Two British aid executives came to Nigeria for a program launch in Sokoto. They flew first class into Lagos, stayed at the Lagos Sheraton for two nights, entertaining and each of them consumed a bottle of high end cognac each night. After two days they flew business class to Abuja, stayed at the the Abuja Sheraton and then went by road the next day to Sokoto in shiny hired SUV’s. They took four hampers of food from the Abuja Sheraton with them because they had been told the food at the hotel in Sokoto would probably not appeal to them. When they got to Sokoto they went with all pomp and pageantry to deliver – now wait for this – 20 goats to 40 families. Or was it 40 goats to 20 families. I can’t remember which. I heard they paid £5000 for the goats.
