lagos airport cleaner return 12 million

March 15, 2015 – Josephine Ugwu, Lagos Airport Cleaner Gets Salary Raised To N15,000 For Returning N12Million, Co-workers Say She’s Mad

The salary of a female cleaner who returned 12 million naira forgotten by a passenger at MMIA airport has been increased to N15,000.

The National Diploma graduate of Our Saviour Institute of Science in Enugu was on a monthly salary of N7800 before the incident.

Her employer, Patovilki Cleaning Services, a company contracted by FAAN to clean MMIA airport thinks the salary increment is the best way to compensate her for returning N12million.

Her colleagues are not happy with the way the FG compensated her exemplary behaviour.

In an exclusive chat with Punch, Ugwu’s colleague 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.”

“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.”

Josephine Ugwu, however, said she is happy her salary was raised and she has no regret for returning the N12million

“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.” – Ugwu said

She is such a trustworthy woman. Hope FAAN can do more to compensate her.

    If Nigeria refuses to recognise honesty, fraudulent behaviour and dishonesty which Nigerians are already known for will always be perpetrated otherwise, How could such an honest lady Josephine Ugwu be so dishonourably treated in a society where honesty is the most scarce commodity. I commend her employers though but they should have done more for her in order to encourage others to follow in her sterling honest behaviour. Josephine Ugwu’s character shows all hope is not lost for Nigeria.

    This lady did well by returning the money. Madam do not listen to the people condemning you, this shows they are dishonest. God will reward you handsomely. If I were her boss, I will recommend to the management to triple her salary. The person who owns the lost and found money should reward her.

    I suspected the man must have compensated that woman through the bus but the bus who handed the money to the owner must have collected the money and instead increased her salary to N 15000.

    Madam you are very kind to return that money. What of if you ate that money and is blood money and it hunt you. Do not hear what all those evil people saying you would not have given the money. do not worry your reward is on the way coming or where ever your children go will be rewarded if not you. Those people saying she would not have return the money. Many of you must have doing lots of curruption just to make money but sorry one day it wil backfire.
