For Returning Missing N12 Million, NOA Rewards Woman With…

The National Orientation Agency (NOA) on Thursday honoured one Miss Josephine Agwu, a cleaner at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport (MMIA), Lagos, who returned N12 miilion that was forgotten by one of the passengers.

The lady, who was honoured with the Citizens Responsibility Recognition award, was appraised by the DG of NOA, Mr. Mike Omeri for her display of honesty.

Mr. Omeri said that the airport cleaner, Miss Agwu has painted the image of the country in a good light which had hitherto been tainted by the conduct of a few Nigerians.

According to him, government was honouring her for doing the right thing adding that her conduct was in line with the new slogan of the agency. He also said that the agency would not relent in rewarding Nigerians that exhibited such honesty in the discharge of their duties.

He urged airport staff to continue to display such exemplary conduct which is the traditional way of life of Nigerians.

According to Omeri, the airport cleaner has joined the league of other honest Nigerians including Governor Babatunde Raji Fashola of Lagos State, who was rewarded for apprehending a traffic offender. He added that other Nigerians including a cab operator in Abuja who have returned money in the past have been rewarded with the citizen’s responsibility recognition ward.

“The Federal Government through the National Orientation Agency decided to honour the airport cleaner as a way of rewarding honesty and transparency.”

“This recognition is in line with our slogan to Nigerians to do the right thing .Showing good example is part of the good values that Nigerians should emulate. Three years ago we gave similar recognition of honour to other Nigerians that have exhibited good conduct of honesty.”
