A tricycle (Keke) operator in Akwa Ibom State, Kingsley Isong, has been rewarded by the state Governor, Mr Udom Emmanuel, for a rare show of honesty after returning a missing sum of over N300,000 to the owner.
It was gathered that the Keke rider, Mr. Kingsley Isong saw a parcel in his tricycle one day after retiring from his business for the day. The package contained vital documents and over 300,000 naira. He used the info in the documents and traced the owner, returned the money, and after ensuring that the documents were complete, the owner rewarded Mr. Kingsley with just 500 Naira.
Kingsley’s show of patriotism was recognised on Friday, 9 March, 2018 by Gov Udom Emmanuel, represented by the Commissioner for Housing and Special Duties, Hon. Akan Okon, who presented him a dummy cheque for the sum of N400,000 during an event organised by the Directorate of Marketing and Brand Management.
