According to media reports, a Nigerian is said to have returned over R43,000 which was overpaid to his account. Its a surprise to many people as the country currently undergoing one of the worst economic situation it has ever seen in recent years.
He shared the post on his Facebook page.
“This is unprecedented, it has never happened, you are indeed a good man. God ll bless you and your family”. AMEN.
I had a contract job with State Universal Education Board (SUBEB). After the job completion, I was mistakenly over-paid with sum of 1 million, Eight Thousand Naira only (1,008,000.00).
When I discovered the discrepancy, I notified the Account Department, and I promised to refund the said amount of money. Firstly, they were shocked by my action as a Nigerian, as it was not discovered by the Auditors.
Today being 7th of December, 2016, as a true patriot and a servant of the Most High God with the fear of God, humanity, conscience and future:
I, Mr Leo Leo Umana on behalf of myself, my wife and kids paid the sum of ONE MILLION, EIGHT THOUSAND NAIRA (R43,000) back into the AK-UBE ACCOUNT.
Attached here is the Cheque and deposit slips.
In a time like this recession and Economic quagmire, Xmas, school fees, it would have been very useful but I thank God for the grace and conscience to report and return the money.
And I know, by His grace and mercy, I have saved the man’s career and job. I am a satisfied man even in my condition.
All glory return to God.”
