Josephine Ugwu

Josephine Ugwu, the Murtala Muhammed International Airport (MMIA) cleaner who returned a passenger’s lost N12 million in foreign currencies, is still receiving honours months after her noble act.

You will recall that earlier in the year, she was honoured by the Lagos Assembly, her employers, and The Redeemed Evangelical Mission TREM.

And now, Police Community Relations Committee (PCRC), MMIA Division, on Thursday in Lagos honoured Ugwu, News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports.

Deputy Commissioner of Police Airport Command, Haminu Makama, presented a plaque and a certificate to her on behalf of the PCRC members.

Makama urged her to continue with her honesty, despite the high rate of unemployment in the country.

He said Ugwu was honoured for doing the right thing in a society where many would have disappeared with such money.

According to him, her conduct will go a long way in projecting the image of the country, even in the international community.

    Josephine, you are a beautiful example of what being honest is.

    Thank you for showcasing this brilliant trait, at a time when it may not be fashionable to do so.

    May God’s loving blessings continue to be with you and your family.
