Zamfara State Governor, Dauda Lawal has honoured the state’s pilgrim, Hajiya Aishatu Guru-Nahuche, for returning $80,000 she found to the owner in Saudi Arabia.

The pilgrim, who is from Bungudu Local Government Area, handed over the money, about N64.24 million, to officials of Zamfara Pilgrims Welfare Agency who returned the money to the owner.

The governor hailed the woman for her “uncommon sincerity”.

“We have seen a clear example of honesty worth emulating from Hajiya Aisha. Believe me, not everyone will find such a huge amount of money at a place where there was no one and return it.

“The Zamfara State government will do the needful to help the family of Hajiya Aisha. President Bola Ahmed Tinubu will also honour her for this act of honesty,” Lawal said.

The emir hailed the state government for recognising her, saying the gesture would encourage others to be honest.


Hajiya Guru-Nahuche, who narrated how the incident happened in Saudi Arabia, thanked the state government for recognising her action.
