I Got 3 Plots of Land Free in the Heart of Abuja for Being Nice to an Old Lady- Mike Ezuruonye

I Got 3 Plots of Land Free in the Heart of Abuja for Being Nice to an Old Lady- Mike Ezuruonye

When i read about the tale of how Nollywood star actor, Mike Ezuruonye got 3 plots of land in Abuja for free without as much as breaking a sweat, I had a rethink about being courteous. We are talking about properties worth close to N100 million or more for the three plots.
Well, I am not a snobbish person but i most of the time like minding by business especially when my help is not needed. But to be honest, I am now willing to help out even when I am refused.
That was  the case with Mike who through his insistence to help out an advanced lady with her luggage got an experience that he will live with for the rest of his life. read it after the break...

 “There was this day I was travelling to Abuja to shoot a movie and I got into the aircraft and met this woman, she was older than my mother. As I made to put my bag in the overhead compartment, I greeted her but she didn’t answer me. I just ignored her and sat down.

On arrival in Abuja, the woman was struggling to get her luggage from the compartment and I just stretched my hand and helped her to get it.

She asked for it without a thank you but I refused to give it to her, offering to help her take it down. On getting out of the aircraft, she again requested for her luggage but I said, madam I’ll take it to the arrival hall for you and she looked at me with bewilderment.

When we got to the arrival hall I turned to the woman and handed her luggage to her and as I made to leave, she called me by my name. I was surprised and retorted, so madam you even know my name. But why did you not answer me when I greeted you on board the aircraft. She then said,

Mike, I’ve come across a lot of your Nollywood mates and they seem to be pigheaded so that is why I always want to distant myself from them.” I just smiled and told her I’m not like that.

She asked where I was going and I felt she wanted me to ride with her into town. I told her I was in Abuja to shoot a movie. I then turned to leave but some four or five policemen who must have come to pick her told me to wait.

I said what’s my own, I’ve helped her to this place and I want to go. They however insisted that I should wait. I didn’t really know who the woman was but the long and short of it all was that she ended up giving me three plots of land in Abuja.”
