A young Nigerian boy named Philemon Igbokwe have been gifted the sum of N340,000 for returning a lost phone he found. The boy saw the phone at the restroom of an event in Portharcourt. Instead of converting the new phone to his own since he didnt have one, the young boy returned it to the owner. His honesty was rewarded by people in the event who donated money and praised him for been a man of integrity.
In a world where theft is rampart rewarding honesty is a great act. The chairman of the event where the phone was returned narrated the ordeal saying “Yesterday, I chaired the wedding event of Mr. Victor Emma Woke from Elele Town and his wife Joy from Eleme at Exquisite Event Centre, (Eliozu), G.U. Ake Road, PH.
Philemon demonstrated a rare feat of honesty by picking and returning a new android phone forgotten by its owner in the restroom. The MC announced this at the event and people were excited to see such show of honesty from a young boy in a country riddled with vices.
I announced a cash reward of N50,000. while Hon Josiah Olu did N50,000 and Co-Chairman Dr John Bosco – $500. By this, Philemon Igbokwe will go home with N340,000 for returning a phone which if sold as a stolen item, would not make N40,000. I am proud to Congratulate Philemon and his parents for the example he has shown that there are still young ones with integrity in our country. I pray God to uphold Philemon and his family in greatness, honour and success in life.”
