YEN.com.gh has sighted the photo of a pretty young Ghanaian lady who has done one of the most honourable things especially in these difficult times.
In a post sighted on OMG voice, the lady identified as Irene Obeng returned GHc2000 that a mobile money vendor mistakenly gave her when she went to withdraw her money.
According to her, her errands budget was around Ghc1600 so she decided to withdraw Ghc2000 from MoMo. Upon reaching where the transaction would take place, she was asked to wait process the withdrawal while she waited for the cash which was yet to arrive.
Irene stated that after the money was handed to her, she rushed off without checking the money that was given to her, only to get to realise after 5 hours that she had been given two bundles of 20 cedis notes which amounted to GHc4,000

She stated that she was a bit confused as she was almost 70% done with her errands and still had an untouched bundle of money
"Without thinking twice, I paused my errands walked all the way back and handed over the 2000 cedis to her and prompted her that she was supposed to give me just 1 bundle and not 2, the lady just started trembling and crying, I only smiled at her and took my leave," she said.
Irene said the vendor later chased her with GHc50 as a token of appreciation for returning that huge amount of money but she declined under the conviction that honesty has to be exhibited no matter what.
The reaction from Facebook users is quite an interesting one, as some people were very sure they wouldn't have done what she did.
