When she returned to pick up the car however, the mechanic returned N60,000 change from the N80,000 she had initially given him for his services.
“Two days later when I went to pick my car, to my utter disbelief, this mechanic, Mr. Godwin Omaga Innocent whose workshop is situated on Ibrahim Taiwo /Abeokuta Road, Kaduna said the car is working perfectly and here is my change. He gave me N60,000.
“I said “what? and you say the car is okay?” He said ” Yes Ma’am”. He narrated how the Panteka man gave him 3 different parts but none worked satisfactorily. He then went to other places and got the components. As l write this piece, the car is working perfectly.””
Mariam was impressed by his honesty, especially due to the fact that he has a wife and children to cater for and would have easily kept the money to himself. She called on others to join her in celebrating Godwin whom she described as a man of integrity.
“When I expressed how shocked l was, he said Ma’am, WHAT IS NOT MINE, IS NOT MINE. Please friends, help me celebrate this exceptional Nigerian, a man of integrity, a God – fearing man and a beautiful example of honesty. The only thing that influenced his decision to return the money was his CONSCIENCE.
“Let this be a lesson to all, that what God has not given you is not yet yours. Give honour to whom honour is due. Thank you once more Mr Godwin Omaga Innocent.”
