The Member of Parliament for the North Tongu Constituency in the Volta Region, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa, has given an amount of GHC1,000 to the National Service Personnel who returned unearned salary to his employer.
Fred Duhoe received the money moments after he shared a story on Facebook that he had returned a salary that was wrongly paid into his bank account by his employer.
Apart from being honest, it is turning out that Fred is also generous as he says he will be giving GHC100 out of the amount to his sick friend.
“Guess what, Hon Sam Okudzeto Ablakwa just surprised me with Gh1000 with this message attached. Please help me thank him. I’m giving out Gh100 to Makafui who has been on her sickbed for some time now. That’s my tithe”.
The story of Fred Duhoe went viral after he detailed how he returned unearned salary which was wrongly paid into his bank account to his employer.
Fred Duhoe who was part of the 2019/2020 service group was paid for the month of October 2020 despite not being at post.
Below is how he shared his story
I’m not seeking for praise. I want my conscience to be at peace while others can equally learn from it.
Almost reaching Dawa on the Accra-Aflao highway from Volta yesterday, I got an alert from my bank. Checks confirm that I have been paid for the month of October (for no work done).
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 ‘workplace and hand it over”. Yes, I did so and even added Gh1 extra.
So this morning I got up, and I returned the money to HR. Yes, I need money to survive but when I get a well-paid job, and I EARN it, I will spend it with Joy. I need to be morally upright to chastise any corrupt person in society.
All I have to sustain me throughout this week is less than Gh42 but man shall not live by bread alone.
NB. officially done with my NSS and looking forward to a better tomorrow.
