Your Excellency, Alhaji Ibrahim Hassan Dankwambo, the executive Governor of Gombe State, Talban Gombe. I Junaidu Usman Abubakar, heartily felicitate with you sir on your Hall of Grace (HOG) 2018 Award.
I wish to join your numerous supporters and admirers all over the universe and the good people of Gombe State and Nigeria as a whole to heartily rejoice with you on the occasion of HOG’s 8th Anniversary and Special Induction Ceremony with such a deserving honour.
Anyone who is familiar with the HOGs Awards knows that it celebrates only the best who have made it a point of duty to better the lives of their people. The awards have developed into the barometer for measuring the performance of the very best of Nigerians that have gone the extra length to put the people first.
The Award Board and Custodians are an attestation of this assertion; Hon Chief Alex Akinyele, Professor Dupe Olatubosun, Professor Bolaji Akinyemi, Rupert Ojenuwa, Peter Armand Boyo, Ituah Ighodalo to mention a few. All of whom are gentlemen of immeasurable credence.
One only needs to look at the performance in office, of all the past winners to understand that HOGs maintains a strict vetting code and this makes the award prestigious. It represents duty and is undoubtedly presented to only those who have been unquestionably outstanding in delivering dividends of democracy to the people of their states, like Talban Gombe has done for Gombe State.
Once again, Congratulations sir. I wish you success and prosperity in all of your present and future endevours. Amin.
