Gateman Allegedly Rejects House Offer From His Boss And Opts For Borehole In His Community

A gateman has rejected a house offer as a parting gift from his boss whom he served for 25 years. He, instead, requested that a borehole be sunk for his community which he said lacked water.










Musa Usman, from Giljimmi, a Fulani settlement in Birniwa Local Government Area of Jigawa State, lives with his family in a thatched house.

Usman, who had served the Indian national, Mr. V. Verghese, who is also the Managing Director of a pharmaceutical company, Jawa International Limited in Lagos, for 25 years, left the service in order to reunite with his family in the village.

When Usman was leaving, Verghese offered to build a house for him to appreciate his diligence while he was his gateman

People in Usman’s community were previously trekking a long distance for water.

Speaking at the commissioning of the borehole, Verghese said his decision for the parting gift was borne out of a high degree of honesty exhibited by Usman while he was working with him.

He said: “Musa has served me diligently for 25 years. We would travel to India and leave our house under his care and behold, we would meet everything intact. He is indeed an honest Nigerian.”

Usman, thanked Verghese for the gesture, saying he had no regret substituting the house offer with community borehole.

    1. Seriously, if I were the boss I will still build it though we don’t know maybe the boss has that kind of money to spare

    2. My thought too. The man has just proven he is good man Not concern about himself alone. God bless him more in retirement.

    3. Because you gave him money to hold for you, abi? Do you know if he can afford both?

    4. If you were his boss you would be owing him salary and use his money to pop bottles in the club. Take several seats.

    5. He got the house and the borehole but shame on the Jigawa state government the could not provide borehole water to its citizens.

    6. Leave them, they wont provide the basic amenities for the masses but they will be quick to dash one person millions to go for treatment abroad. Nonsense!

    7. The cost of constructing a borehole in the north will build 2-3 houses. The boss is a good man. Building a house would have been cheaper for him, but he decided to build 3 houses. God bless him.

    2. This is how entitlement and unappreciation for little favors start.

      The man opted to have water in his community out of love and not selfishness..which is worth emulating.

      You all saying the man should still build house , is it mandatory?
      The Indian offered him that out of goodwill.

      Before you Hala build house with borehole infront..hope you sabi say the terrain in Jigawa is not like delta state o..water level is down, you have to blast rocks to get to a good source..

    3. @Cynthia My point exactly. When you see a good person going out of their way to make others happy, bend backwards for them a so others can see the clear example. I bet I would have taken a loan to enable me do both, if I have to. Afterall na me go still get blessings. Like i said, at all at all na im bad pass.

      @orela you actually have a point but you are replying my comment as if your village head chased you out of a nightmare into blogosphere.

      Please put on your bra it has fallen. Pele oh Spokesperson of Jigawa state *hiss*

    4. @chikito...this your reply still reeks of entitlement though stop trying so hard to justify it. Its allowed for some set of people it gives variety to life.

      Ps. The whole nightmare, village head, bra , blogosphere is world salad to me just can't make sense out of it no matter how hard I try. Biko break it down , you know some of us barely made it out of elementary school

    5. Orela I agree with you. Perhaps the Indian isn't as wealthy as we think but wants to thank the baba who seems like part of family to them. We all should learn to appreciate the little someone does for us instead of looking into the giver's bag to check if he or she has given everything

  21. People like Musa should be running for office and not the jokers we keep recycling.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. While I commend Musa for his altruism, No people like Musa shouldn't hold public office except they are qualified. That's the kind of sentiments that gave us Buhari. Now, he's spending our money on his health. Anyways, Musa could have had a house with a borehole inside the house which could serve as a source of water to his community. That way he has his house and helps his community at the same time.
      That said, I know Musa will have other houses with this publicity soon.But what if this was his only chance at a house? He just blew it.

    2. Unfortunately
      If he tries to run for office he wouldn't be voted for cause the assumption would be that he is poor and wants to enrich himself.

      I really wish we Nigerians would.focus more on
      People with integrity and heart of service.

Am sure the day Stella stops her giveaways only authentic people would remain on here. Rubbish. If you all nagging that the man should still build the house are really serious about it . Then call yourselves together and open an account to make the plan visible. Nobody is holding you people.
