Nigerian family fulfills their father’s dying wish to refund the N11 million he was paid as salary during the period he missed work and tenders an apology to the state government
A Nigerian family in Yobe state, has fulfilled their late father, Baba Aji Mamman’s order to refund his unearned salaries to the state government.
According to an advertorial published by the family on DailyTrust, their father worked as a staff of the Rural Electrification Board in Damaturu, Yobe state. Because of his age, health condition and other factors, he only went to work twice or three times a week as against the five times he was expected at work.
Before his death on March 28th, 2020, he instructed his family to calculate the salaries paid to him for the days he wasn’t at work and refund the money. By their calculation, the unearned salaries came to N11 million.
The family has now raised the money and has paid the money to the state government’s account and also apologised for his conduct.
