The federal government through the Nigerians in Diaspora Commission (NIDCOM) has praised the good virtue of Ikenna Nweke, a Nigerian in Japan who returned a lost wallet that contained a huge sum of money and a credit card.
Abike Dabiri-Erewa in a statement on Sunday, June 28, said Ikenna’s character is the true representation of Nigerians all over the world.
The NIDCOM boss added that the good deeds of Nigerians are far more than the few negative ones tainting the image of the country.
Ikenna is a PhD student at the University of Tsukuba, Japan and he carries out the responsibility of a teaching assistant.
He found the wallet as he was ascending the staircase on the way to get things for his wife at Tsukuba centre.
Ikenna is an indigene of Amauzari in Isiala Mbano local government in Imo state. He relocated to Japan in 2013 with the help of a Japanese government-sponsored scholarship programme.
