A Nigerian entrepreneur, Abideen Olasupo has been hailed after returning $2,397 wrongly paid to his account.
Olasupo is an alumnus of the Tony Elumelu Foundation (TEF) entrepreneurship programme.
The foundation said in an Instagram post on Monday that Mr Olasupo exhibited one of the attributes of a TEF entrepreneur which is integrity.
Explaining further, the TEF said of the 2018 alumnus, “He was mistakenly credited the sum of $2,397 by his client and he quickly called and alerted them, and returned the money in full.
“This has earned him recognition from various notable organisations and media platforms.”
Olasupo, who is also an alumnus of HBS Online and Lagos Business School, according to his Instagram profile, reposted the foundation’s message on Instastories.
