A customer service officer at Eko Hotel and Suites in Nigeria, Kekwaru Ngozi Mary, will soon be leaving Nigeria after receiving a permanent residency in Canada for returning N53.9m ($70,000) left behind in the hotel by a guest.
Ngozi’s story took an unexpected turn when she discovered a substantial sum of $70,000 left behind by a guest in one of the hotel’s suites. Rather than succumbing to temptation, Ngozi immediately reported the lost money and ensured it was returned to its rightful owner.
The news of Ngozi’s remarkable act captured the admiration and attention of many for her integrity.
An international organisation, which was deeply impressed by her fluency in French and her unwavering commitment to honesty, has extended an offer to assist Ngozi in obtaining permanent residency in Canada, completely free of charge.
This generous offer has marked a significant turning point in Ngozi’s life, paving the way for a future brimming with new opportunities and horizons. Reflecting on her journey, Ngozi expressed her belief that honesty truly pays off.
Ngozi’s remarkable story has also garnered recognition on the local front. Her community has rallied to honour her extraordinary integrity. The local government chairman personally flew her to Port Harcourt, where she was lavishly accommodated in a prestigious hotel.
Additionally, Ngozi was bestowed with an ambassadorial award and even had a building named after her.
Back in her village, she received a chieftaincy title, solidifying her status as a respected figure within her community.
Ngozi recounted the blessings on her while testifying during testimony time in Pastor Jerry Eze’s morning stream of joy fellowship where she said she hooked up to a pastoral declaration that somebody will do something minute that will change the person’s life.
“Pastor said a minute thing will happen in your office that will blow you to the world and I hooked up to it and said amen,” she said.
The narrative from Ngozi Kekwaru in her Eko Hotel working space serves as a powerful reminder that honesty and integrity are qualities that not only shape individual character but also open doors to unexpected rewards.
As she embarks on this new chapter of her life, Ngozi’s journey continues to inspire countless individuals, reaffirming the age-old adage that doing the right thing does, indeed, yield remarkable outcomes.
