Nigerian Woman Receives N1Million Cash For Returning N13.94 Million Mistakenly Paid Into Her Account
An Enugu woman identified as Mrs. Chukwujama-Eze, has done the unthinkable by returning a hefty amount of N13.94 amidst this Coronavirus economic meltdown.
Mrs. Chukwujama-Eze, a teacher with a mission school in Enugu, has been rewarded greatly by the Enugu State Governor, Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi with N1million cash for her good exemplary deed.
Mrs. Chukwujama-Eze was invited over by the State Commissioner for Gender Affairs and Social Development, Peace Nnaji for a short close door meeting.
Ms Nnaji said “What we are witnessing today is heartwarming and thought provoking. It is something memorable and substantial. This is a woman, Mrs. Josephine Chukwujama-Eze, who to the greatest chagrin of so many people had the sum of N13,946,400.00, mistakenly credited to her bank account. And immediately she saw it, she quickly alerted her husband and they went to the bank and returned the money to the rightful owner.
“We all know that times are hard these days, especially with the Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) pandemic. It is not that she is very comfortable; she is a teacher in a mission school and look at what she has done. This is a real character and Enugu State Government wants to appreciate her for what she has done. His Excellency, Gov. Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi has directed that she should be rewarded with the sum of one million naira,”
In receiving the gift she said,“I was just being my normal self. I never knew that what I was doing will get to this extent. I did what I feel I should do. I did this just to clear my conscience. Thank you, the Honourable Commissioner for Gender Affairs. Please extend my greatest thanks to His Excellency, our dear Governor”.
