The 23-year-old, via his Facebook handle, said that the landlord who recently returned from the United States gave him the dollar bill on the morning of January 22.
According to the Imo state indigene, his landlord said he got good reports of how he took care of his compound in his absence.

Man hails his landlord for reducing his rent
Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously reported that a man celebrated his landlord for reducing his house rent by seven months.
The Kenyan tenant, Kenneth Owuor, shared a copy of a rent review letter his landlord, identified as John Mwedwa, had given him.
In the letter, the landlord said he'd be reducing tenants' monthly rents for 7 months starting from May to December 2022. John cited the prevailing high cost of living as his reason for taking such an action.
Kenneth also revealed that the landlord didn't just start out being kind but has been showing kindness to tenants since he moved in.
According to Kenneth, the landlord gives tenants gifts every Christmas and had one time reduced the house rent by Ksh 3k (N10k) due to a bad service road leading to the house.
