Nigerian Airforce rewarded Bashir Umar with a double promotion after returning a lost Purse containing a whooping sum of N14.9m ($41k).
Yes, you may have seen this news a year ago but we are bringing this back to talk about the heart of gold Bashir Umar has to return such whooping sum of money.
well, his kind deeds didn’t go unnoticed as the Chief of Air Staff of the Nigerian Airforce, Sadique Abubakar saluted Bashir Umar’s good heart in an event organized at the Headquarters in Abuja to celebrate him.
Sadique Abubakar congratulated him, saying he displayed a strong character and referred to him as a “man of integrity” in regards to his action.
Umar who was then a member of the NAF Mobile Air Defence Team was on security duties at the Kano International Airport when he found the money during a routine patrol with some of his colleagues
Umar, without a second thought, called out to the owner of the money, Alhaji Ahmad and gave him back his money.
The returned cash was equivalent to his 10yrs salary.
He was given a double promotion from Aircraftman to the rank of Corporal, a promotion that would have normally taken him over 10yrs to get.
