A tricycle rider in Kano who returned N15 million to its owner has been rewarded with four women as compensation by the Matchmaking Marriage Association in the state, also known as Mai Dalilin Aure.
Auwalu Salisu became well-known when he discovered N15 million, including some CFA currency, and promptly returned it to the owner, who had inadvertently left the money in his tricycle.
Following the widely reported act of kindness, Salisu has received recognition from individuals, government officials, and various groups.
He has also received several gifts, including a new tricycle.
In addition to the contributions from various individuals and groups, the matchmaking association pledged to arrange four women for him to marry, with a selection to be made from a pool of ten women.
Speaking on Freedom Radio on Thursday, the Chairman of the association, Alhaji Mukhtar Inuwa Yakasai, said that among the ladies, two were his daughters.
Yakasai noted that the young man’s integrity, honesty and trust qualified him for the honour.
He said, “The boy has shown the excellent character of our Noble Prophet, Muhammad (SAW). He is indeed trustworthy. That is why we have decided to honour him with these gifts.
“There are ten women for him to select four. Two of them are my daughters.”
