A 22-year-old commercial keke rider in Kano state, Auwalu Salisu has been offered the unique reward of 4 women for marriage after his remarkable act of honesty.
Salisu, who made headlines for returning a whopping N15 million to a passenger who had forgotten the cash in his tricycle, was recognized and rewarded by the Kano Matchmaking Marriage Association, known as Mai Dalilin Aure.
The story began when the owner of the substantial sum, a traveler from the Republic of Chad who had come to Kano to purchase goods, accidentally left behind the N15 million in the backseat of Salisu’s tricycle.
Gistreel reported that upon hearing a radio broadcast about the missing money, Salisu made the commendable decision to return the entire amount to its rightful owner, despite facing ridicule from friends and relatives for his honesty.
Chairman of the matchmaking association, Alhaji Mukhtar Inuwa Yakasai, spoke to Freedom Radio in Kano and emphasized the exceptional character displayed by Salisu.
As a token of their appreciation, the Kano Matchmaking Marriage Association offered Salisu the opportunity to choose four women for marriage from a selection of ten eligible candidates.
In a surprising twist, Yakasai revealed that two of the women included in the options were his own daughters.
“The boy has shown the good character of our Noble Prophet, Muhammad (SAW). He is indeed trustworthy.
“That is why we have decided to honour him with these gifts. There are 10 women for him to select four. Two of them are my daughters,” Yakasai said.
