Murtala Muhammed International Airport, MMIA, Lagos, staff Miss Josephine Ugwu, who found a huge sum of money belonging to a passenger and returned it to the owner shall be given employment in the Enugu State civil service.
This was the decision reached by the Enugu State House of Assembly, Tuesday, when the House urged the Executive to give her immediate employment in the state civil service.
Apart from giving Miss Ugwu automatic employment, the House also urged the state government to honour and immortalise her for her truthfulness and humility as well as name a street after her.
The House equally resolved to write Miss Ugwu a letter of recommendation to serve as an inspiration to other Nigerians.
Speaker of the House, Hon. Edward Ubosi, before putting the question on the motion sponsored by the Chief Whip, Hon. Matthias Ekweremadu, thanked the sponsor and co-sponsors of the motion for their contributions to the debate.
Ubosi described Miss Ugwu as a true daughter of Enugu State and Igboland.
“I thank you in a special way because you have proved to be a true Wawa woman. Wawa means ‘No, no’. You said no to temptation. Keep it up, God will reward you abundantly,” Ubosi
Hon. SKE Ude-Okoye, Awgu North said it is rare for people to do what she has done, especially now that most nations regard Nigerians as bad people that cannot be trusted and suggested that a street be named after her.
“I do move that the House do urge Enugu State Government to name a street in the state capital after her for her truthfulness and honesty,” Ude-Okoye urged.
