President Muhammadu Buhari on Wednesday expressed the belief that despite the scoffing of a minority , Nigeria is resolutely on the road to a new dawn .According to a statement by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity , Mr . Femi Adesina , the President said this while commending two security men who returned a handbag filled with valuables forgotten at the Murtala Muhammed Airport by an American returnee .
He said , “ Honesty remains the best policy . We must exhibit such behaviour in whatever position we find ourselves , whether high or low.
“ 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 recommend their conduct to the rest of the country . ”
The President urged Nigerians to bring out the best in themselves at all times , noting that with such minds , they can never be hoodwinked again by those who seek power for selfish and dubious reasons and return the country to an inglorious past .
“ Nigeria will no longer be a by – word for corruption and plundering of public resources . That is the path we have chosen to take , and our country will eventually get to a new shore , ” Buhari said .
A Lagos -based medical doctor , Banji Oyegbami, was said to have met a family returning from America at the airport on August 18 , 2018 .
In the process of loading their luggage into the car of their host , the handbag of the returnee ’ s wife reportedly fell, unknown to anyone .
About 90 minutes later, an officer of Halogen Securities who was on duty at the airport called the couple to come for the misplaced bag .
When the bag was eventually collected , the contents , including a handsome amount of American dollars , phone , wrist watch , and other valuables were intact .
The grateful couple offered a generous gift , but Messrs Francis Emepueaku and Achi Daniel , declined , saying they were merely doing their duties .
