The Executive Vice Chairman of NCC, Prof Umar Danbatta has been commended for boosting security and national development in Nigeria.
The commendation came from Traditional rulers and concerned community leaders
from Danbatta Local Government Area, Kano State and its environs.
The traditional rulers and the community leaders spoke at an event organised by Danbatta (Community) Charity Foundation, (DCF) in conjunction with four other organisations including Zauren Tuntuba, a non-for-profit organisation; Danbatta Academic Forum (DAF); Danbatta Reporters and Duniya Ba Hutu, in Danbatta community, Kano.
The event was the graduation ceremony of 10 female students from Muslim Community College of Health Sciences and Technology Funtua, and another 20 empowered females in vocational training focused on tailoring and fashion, all of whom were sponsored by Prof. Danbatta.
The Executive Vice Chairman was conferred with a special recognition award, for his immense contribution to the security of Danbatta community, among other community development initiatives.
Professor Danbatta appreciated the partners as well as the community leaders, for recognizing his modest contributions to the development of the Danbatta and neighbouring community.
He said the kind gesture will encourage him
to do more for his community.
The Sarkin Bai of Bichi Emirate and District Head of Danbatta, Alhaji Isiyaku Wada Waziri, emphasized that the local community has witnessed improvement in its security efforts following personal security support received from Prof. Danbatta.
“One of the most important thing anybody can give to Nigerians presently is security, because without security, no business will prosper and people will not live in peace. Among all the efforts that Prof Danbatta has made to support the community, his support in the areas of security is valued the highest.”
“Danbatta has been at the forefront of supporting the community in the area of security by sponsoring vigilante groups and financing all aspects of security planning in the local government area and these efforts have continually yielded positive results.”
He further urged Prof. Danbatta not to relent in his philanthropic gesture of helping the community.
“We acknowledge the critical role which the Danbatta-led NCC is playing in leveraging the use of Information and Communication Technology (ICT), through the Emergency Communication Centres (ECCs) ,which NCC is implementing across the country, in enhancing security of lives and property in the country.”
