A Ghanaian jobless man who handed over GH100,000, a key, and an ID card to Accra-based Adom FM in order to help find the owner of the missing items has won over many hearts and has been receiving praise left, right, and center.

He explained in an interview with Adom FM that he didn’t trust the driver and that he believed he could falsely claim to know the owner of the items in order to keep them to himself. As a result, he secretly picked up the items and went to the radio station to take care of the situation.
He gave the reason that his parents had taught him and his siblings to live moral lives when asked why he had decided not to keep the items despite the fact that he was unemployed and particularly needed the money, which was significant enough to change his life.
