A lowly security man for a Indian businessman in Nigeria turned down a gift of a home from his boss and in turn, asked for a borehole for the people in his village.
Musa Usman, a security man, or gateman, as it is commonly known in these parts for a non-professional domestic security man, is the subject of amazement after it emerged that he turned down an offer of a home and rather asked for a borehole for the people in his village.
Usman who hails from Giljimmi, a Fulani settlement in Birniwa local government area of Jigawa State, lives with his family in a thatched house.
According to Celebritiesbuzz.com.gh, Usman has served an Indian national, the managing director of a pharmaceutical company based in Lagos, for 25 years and was time to leave.
The Indian boss thought it wise to reward Usman's loyalty only to be shocked by the request of the truly modest man.
V. Verghese, the Indian boss decided to build a house for Usman in appreciation of his diligent service.
However Usman said his community suffered from acute water shortage, and thus rejected the offer of a house but in place requested for the construction of a borehole for his people.
The people in Usman’s community, who hitherto had to trek long distance to fetch drinking water, are now reportedly relieved from the anguish of not only the long trek but also of drinking unclean water.
In another development, the yet to be launched drone technology to deliver drugs has started saving lives and people have started touting the initiative as laudable.
Charles Coffie, 44, a driver in the Eastern region is one of such persons. He recently heaped praises on the government and Zipline’s yet to be launched drone technology for helping to save his life at the New Tafo Government Hospital.
