President Muhammadu Buhari has urged Nigerians to emulate two airport security men who returned a handbag filled with valuables forgotten at the Murtala Muhammed Airport by an American returnee, saying such conduct reflects the new Nigeria that we all desire.
This was contained in a statement on Wednesday by his spokesman, Femi Adesina.
He said a Lagos-based medical doctor, Banji Oyegbami, had met a family returning from America at the airport on August 18, 2018.
President Buhari believes that despite the scoffing of a minority number, Nigeria is resolutely on the road to a new dawn.
The security men could have chosen to behave differently, following the self-serving principle of ‘if you can’t beat them, join them.’ But they have chosen to be examples of good, honest Nigerians. I commend their conduct to the rest of the country.
