- An old man has shown the power of loyalty as he watched over his boss' property many years after his death without collecting salary
- Decades after his boss' demise, the old man is retiring and going back to his home, revealing his job is all done
- The property owner's son said he does not know how to reward a man who showed them deep loyalty
A story that shatters the wall of ethnicity and tribe has played out and the hope it gives for a bright future is amazing.
A young Nigerian man with the Twitter handle @sarnchos on Tuesday, May 25, revealed how a kind Hausa man had been loyal for almost 30 years to his family.
In an early thread he made in 2019, he wrote about how the man who was over 90 at that time had been keeping his father’s property since his dad’s demise in 1992.
@sarnchos revealed that for most of those years, he never collected any salary but fed himself from the things he grows on the land.
The man who was moved by his action said he really does not know how to reward such a person who had unmatchable loyalty.
In 2021, the son quoted those tweets he made in 2019 and said the old man is set to return to his home in Kano state.
Baba, as he is called, told @sarnchos that his work is done as he has completed a good job in protecting the parcel of land.

"I nearly cry reading this, it got me so emotional, I value loyalty and I so much respect loyal people, may Allah be with baba always. Goodbye is the hardest word."
