Title: A Fair Share

Text: New Oxford English Book 1, Pg 71 – 72

Purpose: Reading for Main ideas and supporting ideas

A Fair Share

Dele Akinola who was very poor, went to Oba Adekunle, and said that he wanted a hundred naira.
‘But why should I give you a hundred naira?’ asked the Oba
‘Because we are relatives,’ said Dele. oba Adekunle was surprised. He did not know Dele Akinola and had never seen him before.
‘Do you belong,’ he said to Dele, ‘to my mother’s family or to my father’s?’

Dele replied that that was not what he meant, ‘You see,’ he said, ‘according to both the Bible and the Qur’an, we are all children of Adam; so because of that, part of your wealth is mine.’

         The Oba said, ‘But this is something I must think about. Come and see me again tomorrow morning.’

         When Dele went to the Oba’s Palace the next day, Oba Adekunle handed him one kobo. He said, ‘If we are all children of Adam, then everyone in the world is my relative. So your share – like everyone else’s – is exactly on kobo
