St. John’s Close,




Dear Daddy,


I am writing you this letter to request for the sum of N10,000.00 (Ten Thousand Naira) only to buy the relevant text books as demanded by the school authority.

Daddy, as you know, good and relevant text books are the pre-requisites for passing any examinations and indeed the Senior Certificate exams for that matter. This is the time to lay hands on them in preparation for WAEC/NECO examinations coming up this April and June respectively this year.

Again, I can imagine how happy you and Mummy and indeed my younger ones will be seeing me come out in flying colours in these two important exams scheduled to hold in not too distant time from now. I promised to work very hard to actualize this dream and by the Grace of God, it shall be realized.

Daddy, I know how much you have spent on my education just to see me becoming great and useful in the society. Inspite of the difficult nature of our economy and society today, you have always sounded it into my ears to be hard working by reading my books so that I can pass my exams brilliantly. You are indeed a great father and a motivator.

Best regards to my Mummy and my younger ones.

Yours sincerely,


John Ogbo.
