Honesty And Integrity ALWAYS Pays

Hello everyone, how I have missed you all and missed blogging too. 

Who says honesty does not pay? Please show them the video below and let them know that HONESTY DOES PAY. It's a video of an awards show held by UBA, a Nigerian bank, which showcases a young man named Ibrahim Obanagoh (sic). 

A customer of the bank left behind $10,000 and this young man serving as a security guard found and returned the cash, intact. Amazing stuff, considering how hard things are in the country and how meagre a security guard's salary is. Ibrahim was highly honoured at the awards show a few days ago and not just that, two state Governors pledged to give him $15,000 from their personal purses (ahem),   a Senator promised to announce Ibrahim at plenary and also pledged the sum of N5,000,000 on behalf of the Senate of the Federal Republic of Nigeria to Ibrahim, and there were a host of other anonymous people who promised to assist the young man. 

Through the whole video clip, notice how humble and in awe Ibrahim remained. I am so proud of him and mightily impressed by him. Nigerians should take a cue from Ibrahim's actions. Say no to stealing, looting, corruptions, lies, wickedness and other such vices. We can make this country great again and it's not rocket science to do this. It begins with YOU and I, individually and then collectively. I know there are still many men and women of integrity such as Ibrahim, and I really hope they can spread such virtues till it rubs off on all of us, home and abroad.

Some people may marvel at the way in which this young man's action is being celebrated, but you see, when you live in a country as corrupt and morally bankrupt as Nigeria, this is worth celebrating. :)
