CLEANER



Josephine Ugwu, a woman who returned N12m naira to the owner at the Murtala Muhammed Airport, Lagos will henceforth enjoy N7, 200 salary increment as a reward for returning the luggage containing the said money.
It was learnt that Ugwu, a staff of Patovilki Cleaning Services, a concessionaire engaged by the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria, FAAN, at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos was before the incidence on a monthly salary of N7, 800.
Punch reports that based on the new increment, Ugwu, a National Diploma Holder will now smile home with N15, 000 monthly pay.
However, some of her colleagues appear disappointed that such show of honesty is not noticed by the government that is quick to punish offenders but never rewards those who are exemplary.
An anonymous concessionaire said the government should encourage people who exhibit exemplary behaviour.
She said, “Some people have abused her and called her a fool for returning the bag. It now looks as if what she did was wrong. Most people will not be motivated to follow her lead when faced with similar situation. The government should have, at least, sent her a commendation letter for what she did.” Another colleague, identified simply as Faith, also expressed disappointment. She said Ugwu had returned passengers’ luggage with money in them for a record third time and all three had gone unnoticed.
“Twice in December 2014, she returned passengers’ luggage with huge sums of money in them.
“One contained about N600, 000 and the other had close to N2m. if it were to be a case of stealing and she was caught, I am sure the government would have been quick to send her to jail.”
However, Ugwu, said she would be happy if she is compensated, adding that she has no regret for her action.
Ugwu affirmed, “I believe that a good name is better than riches. This incident has taken my name far and wide and I am happy that it is for a good cause. God’s reward is the ultimate, but if the government will give me a proper job as promised, I will be happy.
“My company on its part has tried and I am grateful for the management’s action. My salary has been increased and I have also been promoted.”
