Group congratulates Gov Bala Mohammed on TheNigerian News Award as Best Governor in Infrastructure endorses Bauchi Governor for President
The Niger Delta Coalition for Change ( NDCC) says Governor Bala Mohammed’s recent recognition as ‘Infrastructure Governor of the Year’ is well-deserved and a reward for excellence in governance.
The group, in a statement signed by its National President, John Paul Gold, noted that Senator Mohammed’s infrastructural strides and exemplary leadership in Bauchi State are finally getting the recognition it deserves.
Recall that Governor Mohammed was on Thursday conferred with the award by UK-based media group, The Nigerian News at an event to mark its fifth anniversary in Abuja.
Represented by his Senior Special Assistant on Project Monitoring, Mallam Musa Azare, Mohammed was presented with the award by His Royal Highness, the Emir of Lafia, Justice Sidi Bage (rtd).
Governor Mohammed was rewarded at the event alongside former Senate President, Senator Anyim Pius Anyim, Governor Yahaya Bello of Kogi State, former Chief of Army Staff, now Ambassador to the Benin Republic, Ambassador Tukur Buratai (Lt. Gen. retd), Engr Dr Funmi Adekojo among others.
According to the company, Mohammed is a committed reformer with an unflagging love for his people, working tirelessly to embrace innovative ideas that have today transformed the state into an epicentre of good governance.
Congratulating Senator Mohammed, the group said this is a wake-up call to other governors that indeed quality leadership is possible despite the challenges.
Gold said Governor Mohammed has again proven his mettle and readiness to take the big leap to Aso Rock in 2023.
The group, on behalf of other Niger Delta youths, therefore, threw its weight behind the governor if he declares to run for president.
Gold added that with a leader like Mohammed on the saddle, Nigeria’s many problems will be tackled innovatively.
The group, however, urged other governors and public office holders across the nation to take a leaf from the former FCT Minister.
