Shehu tweeted: "President Buhari commends Mr. Hassan for his outstanding conduct, which should be an example for every Nigerian, from cab driver to government official.
"His behaviour is a throwback to the Nigeria of some decades ago, before corruption and greed among public officials became accepted as normal, and polluted our national values.
"President Buhari appreciates Mr. Hassan for inadvertently making himself available as a shining example of the Nigeria that this administration has battled and continues to battle for a Nigeria where our national resources are not appropriated by private individuals, who have no consideration for anyone beyond themselves and their private interests."
