- NIDCOM has commended the honesty of Ikenna Nweke who returned money and credit cards he found in Japan
- The PhD student found the money when he was out to get some items for his wife in Tsukuba
- Ikenna said he could not take the money because he came from a good home and his religion does not support that kind of character
The federal government through the Nigerians in Diaspora Commission (NIDCOM) has praised the good virtue of Ikenna Nweke, a Nigerian in Japan who returned a lost wallet that contained a huge sum of money and a credit card.
In a Sunday statement, Abike Dabiri-Erewa said Ikenna’s character is the true representation of Nigerians all over the world.
The NIDCOM boss added that the good deeds of Nigerians are far more than the few negative ones tainting the image of the country.
It should be noted that the Nigerian is a PhD student at the University of Tsukuba, Japan and also carries out the responsibility of a teaching assistant.
He found the wallet as he was ascending the staircase on the way to get a couple of things for his wife at Tsukuba centre.
Ikenna is an indigene of Amauzari in Isiala Mbano local government in Imo state. He relocated to Japan in 2013 with the help of a Japanese government-sponsored scholarship program.
He said when he returned the money an officer asked him why he did not take it, he said he told him that he was raised by good parents and he is a Christian.
