YEN.com.gh has sighted a post on Facebook of a young Ghanaian man by name Fred Duhoe has shared how he had to return money he had not worked for.
Fred was a National Service personnel who served from September 2019, to August 2020.
According to the young man who wanted his conscience to be at peace, he decided to do an honourable thing by informing his former employers of paying him for no work done.
Fred narrated that while almost reaching Dawa on the Accra-Aflao highway from Volta Region of Ghana, he got an alert from his bank.
Upon his checks, he realised he had been paid for the month of October (for no work done).
According to him, his financial situation at that time would not have allowed him do return the money to his employers because, he had just GHc2.30.
Fred in the Facebook post wrote; "I thought to myself, "son of man, by the time you reach Accra, all that will be left on you is Gh2.30 but be courageous, prove to yourself that you need money but certainly not one you didn't work for. Return this money to your 'work place and hand it over"
Fred noted that his decision to return the money to the Human Resource person of his former company was because he needed to be morally upright person in order to chastise any corrupt person in society.
In photos accompanying the post, the amount of money that was paid to him, was withdrawn and put in an envelope with the inscription, 'unearned salary'
His act of decency and honesty has drawn varied reactions from Ghanaians.
