Many hours ago, Instablog Naija and many other well known media houses in Nigeria gathered reports concerning a certain man named Mallam Tulu, a tricycle rider. This tricycle rider was said to have found about five hundred thousand naira (500k) and returned it to the owner. In return, the tricycle rider was gifted five thousand naira (N5,000) by the owner. Having read reports concerning this man, I will be looking at two (2) lessons to learn from the incident.

1. The first lesson to learn after the tricycle rider got rewarded for returning a huge amount of money is that it's not good to take what doesn't belong to one. Through what the tricycle rider did, he has shown the world that being honest at all time pays. At least, in the end, he was compensated with a token no matter how little. Aside this, this man has already been known for something good by many Nigerians. I mean, he's made a positive history of himself.
2. The second lesson to learn after a man got rewarded with five thousand naira (5k) after returning money he found is that good name is better than riches. If the tricycle rider was thinking of being quickly rich with the money he found, he might not have earned a good name like he did after returning the money.
From the foregoing, it has been established that what the tricycle rider did remains applauding because he has shown people that there are still honest souls out there. Although many people have been criticizing him for his generous act but it doesn't alter the fact that he's already made a good name of himself and his family.
As a reader, what do you have to say about the act of this generous tricycle rider?
