The presence of money is good, the feeling of having it is soothing and when power is now added to this, even the eagles can’t be compared in height to which one soars in satisfaction.
As beautiful as these are, they can’t buy for you what loyalty, trust and followership can. As old as human history, so is the desire of a successful king whose quest is to see and have a worthy successor after him. This must meet a man(successor) in the place of service; loyalty, dedication, close following and above all, trust.
These many attributes and more is in the person of His Excellency Dr. Nasiru Yusuf Gawuna, the Deputy Governor of kano state. A man who eschew guile and has remained a straight forward, committed loyalist to his boss the Executive Governor, H.E. Dr. Abdullahi Umar Ganduje OFR, the Khadimul Islam.
Honor and due credit must be given to the Governor who saw ‘an angel in the stone’ and passionately went for it. Today, the quality of that decision can be seen by all and sundry. Dr. Nasiru Gawuna rose through the ranks, submitted himself humbly to the political leardership-tutelage of Dr. Umar Ganduje. And that is a virtue, HUMILITY!
More so, the quality of his personality is one that resonates to high heavens possessing qualitative leadership attributes vis-à-vis vision, charisma, competence, character decisiveness and empathy put together.
Naturally, Dr. Nasiru Yusuf Gawuna has done so much in the area of human capital development personally as an individual and as the chairman of Nassarawa LG before coming to state level. A perfect gentleman who is loved by all with the exception of none who has come in contact with him.
Dr. Nasiru Yusuf Gawuna as someone who went to some of the best institutions in the country; School of Basic Studies Ahamdu Bello University, Zaria, where he obtained Advance Level Certificate and then proceeded to Usman Dan-Fodio Univerity, Sokoto to obtain a BSc (Honours) Certificate in Biochemistry knows the importance of education as a legacy that can be bequeathed to the younger generation. He’ll surely excel in maintaining it sustainability from the successes achieved by his boss.
His candidacy is one that has put the state in a jubilation mode since it was announced, one could literally feel the euphoria in the atmosphere because this is a man who truly deserves it.
And like a proverbial quote that says, “when a good man is in the helm of affairs, the people rejoice.”
Dr. Abdallah Tahir Ahmad Alkenanah, Hon. DG kano state Urban Beautification and Landscaping Agency (KASUBA).
