Despite the fact that many Filipinos are suffering from poverty right now, there are still those who choose to be honest rather than enjoy a temporary reprieve from that poverty through dishonest means.
Airport wheelchair attendant Valiente Namion became a hero on Friday when he returned a pouch he found at the baggage conveyor 2 of NAIA Terminal 1.
The pouch contained a whopping P102,457.70, an amount which could have been so huge for Namion.
Instead of surreptitiously keeping the pouch, he immediately went to the Lost and Found Section and turned over the item.
According to Airport Police Reynon Flores, when they checked the contents of the pouch, aside from the cash, it also contained credit cards, which belonged to Magnolia Rosa Antonino, a congresswoman from the 4th district of Nueva Ecija.
While the airport police were in the process of verifying and contacting the owner, one Wendell Tagapulot, the political affairs officer from the Congresswoman’s office came to the airport to report the incident.
