The Kano State Government said on Tuesday that it has rewarded Malam Dayyabu Bala Gezawa with a permanent job, a Hajj seat, and the sum of one million naira.

Gezawa, a casual worker with the Kano State Pilgrims Welfare Board, was rewarded for his honesty after returning missing dollars worth N16 million.

Gezawa reportedly found the money while on duty, which he returned to the director general of the board.


The money was part of the pilgrims’ Basic Travel Allowance for one local government area of the state.

Governor Abba Kabir Yusuf, during a presentation of the 2023 Hajj report by the State Pilgrims Welfare Board, said his administration decided to reward him as an expression of appreciation for his honesty.

“This casual worker has proven his integrity by returning missing money, despite his status and economic hardship in the country,” he said.
