Speaking to Legit.ng’s reporter, Damilare Okunola, Josephine said: “I’m very very happy. In short you people are God sent to me because I did not know that day I was passing that you people called me for interview that it will happen like this.”
Explaining further, the woman said she returned the misplaced cash on different occasions because she and her family members are not thieves who would take things that do not belong to them.
Josephine also revealed her plans for the money. She explained that her older brother is without a means of income after he lost his job and that she would take care of his needs. She also added that she would rent a house. Furthermore, she added that her husband who works as a security guard earns N15,000 and that she would help him start a business.
The honest woman also revealed that as a cleaner she used to earn N7,800 but the federal government gave her a job as a Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) staff and she now earns close to N100k.
Interestingly, at the time of this report, Nigerians have already donated N1.6 million to Josephine, and someone has promised her a house.
This is an indication that it pays to be good. Congrats to her.
