Auwalu Salisu, a 22-year-old keke rider in Kano state, has received a unique reward for his outstanding act of honesty.
After returning N15 million to a passenger who had forgotten the cash in his tricycle, Salisu has been offered the opportunity to marry four women by the Kano Matchmaking Marriage Association, Mai Dalilin Aure.
The story began when a traveler from the Republic of Chad accidentally left the significant sum in the backseat of Salisu’s tricycle.
Despite facing ridicule from friends and relatives, Salisu chose to return the entire amount to its rightful owner.
Chairman of the matchmaking association, Alhaji Mukhtar Inuwa Yakasai, emphasized the exceptional character displayed by Salisu during an interview with Freedom Radio in Kano.
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.
