Meanwhile in other news…

Candidate of Labour Party in the 2023 presidential election, Peter Obi has commended Ngozi Mary, a staff of Eko Hotel in Lagos who returned $70,000 misplaced by one of its customers.

He took to his Twitter account on Saturday and called for the woman to be celebrated by government, saying she deserves a national honour and recognition.

The former Anambra State governor said it was heartwarming and reassuring that Mary returned the money to its owner despite the hardship and the prevailing moral decadence in the nation.

According to Obi, it is people like Mary that deserve a national award instead of celebrating those who have impacted negatively on the nation.

He wrote; It is heartwarming and reassuring that despite the hardship in the country and the prevailing moral decadence in society, a staff of Eko Hotel and Suites, Kekwaaru Ngozi Mary, was reported to have returned a misplaced sum of $70,000 to a customer of the hotel in Lagos.

When will Nigeria start celebrating the likes of Miss Ngozi Mary for her honesty and integrity, Teacher Akeem Badru, for winning the 2023 Cambridge Dedicated Teacher Award, and many others like them?

These are the people who deserve to be given national honours and awards and recognition, instead of celebrating those who have impacted our nation negatively. In the New Nigeria that we desire, these are the kind of people that will be celebrated. A New Nigeria is POssible.
