According foremost poet and writer, Williams Shakespeare, there is no legacy so rich as honesty. A secondary school teacher in Kogi state identified as Mrs Abu Queen Ejura, proved to be an honest individual.
When she was overpaid by N130,000, instead of keeping the money, she returned the excess amount back to her employers even in this phase of economic recession.
Director General (Media and Publicity) at Governor’s Office, Kogi State Government, Kingsley Fanwo shared the story saying,
”Honesty. This is the Kogi spirit. Our civil service is not all about fraud. We have honest and reliable civil servants.
Abu Queen Ejura is a teacher with a secondary school in Idah. She was overpaid to the tune of 130,000 naira. Ejura withdrew what is legitimately hers and wrote to the screening committee to report the overpayment.”
