A UBA security man who returned $10,000 he found at his place of work, got tremendously rewarded last night at the 2017 UBA CEO Awards. For his honesty, he got $5,000 from Bauchi State governor, $10,000 from Adamawa State governor and N5million from the Nigerian senate. Other people rewarded him too but did it privately.
Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu, who declared that he will mention the exemplary deed of Ibrahim on the floor of the senate on Tuesday committed the senate to a donation of 5 million Naira to the security man.
Both the chairman of the UBA, Tony Elumelu and the bank’s GMD, Kennedy Uzoka, praised Ibrahim for what he did and said his is the true spirit of Nigeria and not the contrary narrative often told of Nigerians and criminality.
The hundreds of people gathered at the UBA CEO Award 2017 at the Eko Hotels and Suites in Lagos gave a standing ovation to the outstanding security man who returned an amount that was more than his annual salary and is now getting rewarded.
