KWAME Nkrumah Pan African Leadership Award Committee on Tuesday presented Distinguished Leadership Award to Chairman Senate Committee on ICT and a Cybercrime, Senator Abdulfatai Buhari.
The delegates, led by Dr Victor Kwashie Tay, said the award appropriately reflects the endless hours spend by the Senator to ensure that success is recorded within the confines of his office, adding that it tells of a blueprint of his ultimate achievement.
Kwashie noted that “Though your presence would have added color to the occasion, however in recognition of your remarkable achievements and sterling qualities which have attracted this award,we hereby present you this Kwame Nkrumah Pan African Leadership Award with utmost compliments.”
The Senator who told the Award committee that he also schooled in Ghana said, Kwame Nkrumah is one of the African leaders he grew up to look up to as a role model right from when he was in college at Kumasi in 1981 before he relocated to Nigeria.
The APC chieftain, who is representing Oyo North Senatorial District at the upper chamber of the National Assembly said further that “since the inception of the 8th Assembly, which I am privilege to be a member, God has helped me to be consistent and proactive in my legislative duties through sponsoring of motions and bills and at the same time facilitating projects and empowering my constituents.”
“The best is yet to come from me and I will make sure I did not betray the confidence reposed in me by my constituents who gave me the mandate to represent them at the Nation Assembly.
He, however, commended the Kwameh Nkrumah Pan African leadership Award committee for considering him for the award and urged them to not to relent in ensuring the advancement of Africa and its people.
It would be recalled that Senator Buhari was honoured by the Federation of Oyo State Student Union (FOSSU) and Pharmaceutical Society of Nigeria (PSN) few weeks ago for his outstanding performances at the Senate.
