Eko Hotel and Suites worker, Kekwaaru Ngozi Mary, has taken delivery of the $10,000 pledged to her by Music superstar, David Adeleke, popularly known as Davido for her extraordinary act of honesty.
This huge reward came just days after Mary discovered and swiftly returned a missing $70,000 in Lagos to its rightful owner, a customer in the hotel.
Despite several netizens’ reservations about returning such a large sum, especially given the status of the economy, Davido took it upon himself to find Mary and compensate her for her generous deeds.
In a tweet, he said, “Find her for me…..I donate $10,000.”
Thanks to the power of social media and Davido’s tweets, Mary was located within a day, and she gratefully received her well-deserved reward from Davido.
Earlier today, Mr Peter Obi of the Labour Party LP, had issued a statement celebrating Ngozi Mary for her act, saying it was heartwarming and reassuring that she did the act despite the hardship in the country and the prevailing moral decadence in society.
Obi also recommended her for national honour.
