In an era when Nigerians living abroad make the headlines with negative news, a qatar based Nigerian man has shown the world that not all Nigerians are bad.
Micheal Asemota, who is the Vice President of the Nigerians in Diaspora organization in Qatar, was erroneously paid the sum of QR1.5m which is equivalent of $411,128, after depositing the sum of QR150,000 in his account.
According to Qatar tribune, Asemota said when he got back home, he received an alert showing that a QR1,502,000 had been credited into his account by mistake instead of QR150,200. Asemota went back to the bank and returned the money.
”After opening the account with the bank, I checked my balance to make withdrawals for a supply job and found the huge sum. I was amazed and decided to contact the bank.
I went to see the manager to report the error of QR1,502,000 deposited into my account. After checking for confirmation, the manager gave me a warm handshake in appreciation.”
Asked why he alerted the bank about the error, Asemota said,
”I knew the money did not belong to me and shouldn’t be in my account in the first place, so there were no motives and temptations to keep it.”
