The soon-to-be ex-leader of Britain, David Cameron, called Nigeria “fantastically corrupt” because of the news about evil men that masquerade as politicians and civil servants. Today, we are happy to let him know the real Nigerians. In a moving story from Mr. Tony Elumelu, the Chairman of UBA Group, we read about Mohammed Ibrahim Ogbanago, a security guard who returned $10k he saw in the bank.
‘Last month, Mohammed Ibrahim Ogbanago, a security guard at the at ubagroup branch in Oba Akran, found $10,000 outside on the ground at his branch. In an unparalleled display of integrity, he decided to return the money. When I heard about this story, I knew I had to meet the man who despite facing rising petrol & transportation prices and “tomato ebola” returned such a huge sum of money without recourse to himself.
It was a pleasant surprise to hear him tell this story and about how he came to be in the board room with us. Even more surprising was hearing him speak about his passion for governance and integrity in leadership.
Mohammed Ibrahim Ogbanago is an exemplary ambassador of the UBA spirit and it was fulfilling to meet and reward him for his conduct.
The at UBAGroup management is proud to have this caliber of staff at all levels. Congratulations to Mohammed and keep up the good work’.
