Kano state Governor, Abba Yusuf has offered a permanent and pensionable appointment to a casual staff of the Kano State Pilgrims Welfare Board, Dayyabu Haladu (aka) Dan Gezawa who returned $16,000 missing funds during the last Hajj operation in the state.
The Governor also offered a special gift of N1million and automatic slot for the forthcoming Hajj Excercise.
Governor Yusuf disclosed this while receiving the report of the Kano state Pilgrims Welfare Board for the 2023 Hajj operation.
In a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Sanusi Bature Dawakin-Tofa said the Governor expressed his heart-felt appreciation to the casual staff for displaying the act of self contentment.
He said such character displayed by Dayyabu is an excellent character worthy of emulation by all and sundry.
“As a casual staff whose allowance is nothing to take home about, this gentleman managed to return the lost money worth over 15 million. It shows how this person has a fear of Allah and he deserved to be celebrated” the governor stressed.
Governor Yusuf then called on the good people of Kano to maintain the hard earned reputation of the state by showcasing the good virtues of trust worthiness, self discipline and contentment so that they can live a happy life.
In his response, the beneficiary, Dayyabu Haladu (Dan Gezawa), revealed that he has returned the lost money to the authority of state Pilgrims Welfare Board for the fear of Allah, knowing well that it is not proper to use what does not belong to him despite current economic status.
