Title: Adewale’s Honesty

Once upon a time, in the bustling city of Lagos, there lived a young boy named Adewale. Adewale was a bright and responsible boy who always believed that honesty is the best policy. One sunny day, as Adewale was returning from school, something extraordinary happened.

Adewale hopped onto a crowded bus heading towards Obanland in Lagos Island. As he settled into his seat, he noticed something shining on the floor. It was a small bag filled with money! Adewale’s heart raced, but he knew exactly what he had to do. With a sense of duty and honesty, he picked up the bag and opened it to find a whopping sum of ₦200,000. 

Adewale’s mind was filled with thoughts of what he could do with the money, but his honest nature prevailed. He thought about how someone must be desperately looking for this money. Adewale remembered his parents always telling him that honesty pays off in the long run.

Without any hesitation, Adewale decided to find the owner of the money. He asked the conductor for help, and they discovered that the bag belonged to a woman named Mrs. Dalsiva, who lived in Lekki, another part of Lagos State. Adewale and the conductor made their way to Mrs. Dalsiva’s house and returned the money to her.

Mrs. Dalsiva was overjoyed and grateful to Adewale for his honesty. She couldn’t believe that such a young boy had made the right choice. She rewarded Adewale with a heartfelt thank you and a small token of appreciation.

Adewale’s act of honesty spread throughout the community, and he became a role model for his peers. He showed them that honesty is always the best policy, no matter how tempting the situation may be. Adewale’s story taught everyone a valuable lesson that doing the right thing brings its own rewards.

From that day forward, Adewale continued to live by the principle that honesty is the best policy. He knew that by being honest, he would earn the trust and respect of others, and most importantly, he would be proud of himself.

So, dear children, remember the inspiring story of Adewale, the honest boy who returned ₦200,000 to its rightful owner. Always choose honesty, for it will guide you on the path to success and a good life
