In an awe-inspiring episode of honesty and integrity, a Nigerian tricyclist named Auwalu Salisu has captivated the hearts of Nigerians and the internet community.
His deed? Returning a whopping sum of ₦15 million (equivalent to about $20,000) to its rightful Chadian owner, who had inadvertently forgotten the cash in his tricycle.
- Auwalu Salisu’s exemplary act of returning the lost money.
- Kano State Matchmaking Marriage Association’s unique reward to Salisu.

Auwalu Salisu’s act echoes the famous quote by Jefferson, “Honesty is the first chapter in the book of wisdom.” While it’s common to appreciate and reward honesty with words or monetary compensation, the Kano State Matchmaking Marriage Association, colloquially termed as ‘Mai Dalilin’, has taken a novel approach.
A Unique Marriage Proposal
The association, in an unexpected gesture, has put forward ten women, allowing Salisu to choose four among them for marriage. This unusual reward, as reported by the Daily Trust, came to light when Alhaji Mukhtar Inuwa Yakasai, the Chairman of the matchmaking association, voiced his thoughts on Freedom Radio Kano.
Why This Unique Offer?
According to Alhaji Mukhtar Inuwa Yakasai, Chairman of the matchmaking association, Salisu has exhibited attributes reminiscent of Prophet Muhammad, which merits this honor. In a surprise twist, two of the women on the list are the chairman’s own biological daughters.
Alhaji Yakassi’s Statement:
“The boy has shown the good character of our Noble Prophet, Muhammad (SAW). He is indeed trustworthy. That is why we have decided to honor him with these gifts. There are 10 women for him to select four. Two of them are my daughters.”
