A man went to his lawyer and told him, “My neighbour owes me N50,000 and he won’t pay up. What should I do?”
“Do you have any proof he owes you the money?” asked the lawyer.
“No,” replied the man.
“OK, then write him a letter asking him for the N500,000 he owes you,” said the lawyer.
“But it’s only N50,000,” replied the man.
“Precisely. That’s what he will reply and then you’ll have your proof!”
