The family of a deceased civil servant in Yobe State, Alhaji Baba Aji Mamman, has fulfilled his last wish by returning to the state government the sum of N11 million reckoned as his unearned salaries.
Mamman, who died on March 28, 2020, was before his death an official of Yobe Rural Electrification Board in Damaturu, the state capital.
He was said to have infrequently gone to work as an employee of the state government as a result of illness or deliberate absenteeism.
Pricked by his conscience that he collected sums he did not deserve as salaries while he worked with the state government, Mamman, according to an advert the family placed in Daily Trust, told his family to ensure that the money was refunded.
Less than two years after his death, the family said they have fulfilled Mamman’s last wish by returning N11 million to the Yobe State Government coffers in Access Bank.
The returned sum is said to be an equivalent of Mamman’s salaries for about 11 years.
Babagana Baba Aji, who signed the advert in Daily Trust, sought forgiveness for Mamman from the general public and the Rural Electrification Board.
“May Almighty Allah give you all the hearts to forgive and pray for his eternal rest in Aljanna Firdausi inShaaAllah.
“Thank you for the cooperation accorded him while he served and May Almighty Allah forgive our shortcomings and grant us Aljannah,” he said.
