A Nigerian man who is identified as Lieutenant Victor Agunbiade, who kept a large amount of money for the United States (US) Navy, stated that he was not tempted to steal it.
The US Navy expressed their gratitude towards him for managing its large overseas cash disbursement office well.
Lieutenant Victor Agunbiade was awarded the Navy and Marin Corp Development Medal for his exemplary accountability.
While he was serving as the disbursing officer, comptroller department, Camp Lemonneir Djibouti from October 2019 to July 2020, he managed $45 million in cash transitions well.
The Nigerian man was 100% accountable with not even one cent missing from the money he was managing.
He stated that he and his colleagues treated the money as though they were treating files, not thinking that they could put some of it in their own back pockets, and they were never tempted to steal the money.
The lieutenant stated that he joined the navy when God showed him that it was his path through a dream.
He stated that before he worked in the navy, he worked two jobs and that he was just doing that so that he could send money back home to his family in Nigeria.
This made him want to live a better life where he did not have to work two jobs just to send small amounts of money to his family and so he prayed for a better life and God showed him that the navy was where he want meant to be, but managing large amounts of money did not tempt him.
