Vanguard Media, owners and operators of Vanguard Newspaper, have presented a letter of notification of conferment of Award to Governor Muhammadu Inuwa Yahaya as Vanguard Governor of the Year 2021.
The delegation from the Vanguard Group, led by the Chairman of the Editorial Board of the media outfit, Ocherome Nnanna, presented the latter to Governor Yahaya in Abuja.
Nnanna said the Vanguard’s award to Governor Inuwa was in recognition of his sterling leadership, superlative performance and uncommon commitment to industrial, infrastructural, and human capital development of Gombe State.
He said Vanguard particularly acknowledged Governor Yahaya’s transformational leadership, fiscal reengineering, speedy completion of several uncompleted projects inherited from previous administration, reducing of backlog of pension/gratuity, as well as execution of various physical and social infrastructural projects across the state.
Vanguard also cited Governor Yahaya’s giant strides in the health sector, especially the revitalization of Primary Health Care across all the political wards of the state, as well as the reconstruction and upgrade of general hospitals among others.
Responding, Governor Yahaya appreciated the honour, which he said would spur him to do more in service to humanity.
Recently, the Lagos based tabloid announced Governor Yahaya as its 2021 Governor of the Year and that its official presentation would be held at an elaborate ceremony later in March.
