President Muhammadu Buhari is delighted to learn about the remarkable act of honesty by Abubakar Hassan, a taxi driver in Abuja, who returned valuable property forgotten in his car by a passenger.

Even when the passenger had no way of tracing him, Mr. Hassan went out of his way to seek her, and to return her possessions intact.

President Buhari commends Mr. Hassan for his outstanding conduct, which should be an example for every Nigerian, from cab driver to government official.

His behaviour is a throwback to the Nigeria of some decades ago, before corruption and greed among public officials became accepted as normal, and polluted our national values.

President Buhari appreciates Mr. Hassan for inadvertently making himself available as a shining example of the Nigeria that this administration has battled and continues to battle for, … a Nigeria where our national resources are not appropriated by private individuals, who have no consideration for anyone beyond themselves and their private interests.

  1. This act is rare in our present economy today because greed has really taken over the majority. Man cannot reward man for his good did but it’s only God that Can. It’s really good to be good.
