Sokoto State Governor Rt Hon Aminu Waziri Tambuwal has been conferred with the man of the year award by the New Telegraph Newspaper.
The award was presented to the Governor and Nigeria's acclaimed bridge builder, quintessential leader and icon of democracy, by One of Nigeria's leading national newspapers, the New Telegraph on Saturday, 17th November 2018 at a ceremony held at Federal Palace Hotel, Lagos.
Tambuwal the great legal mind, master political strategist and humanist no doubt deserved the highly coveted Man of the Year Award. In view of his enormous contributions to the development of Sokoto state and Nigeria.
The New Telegraph in its citation on the humble and ever smiling Governor said: "His entrance and subsequent assumption to the highest level of politicking has been momentous and upwardly.
Indeed according to the citation to say that Governor Tambuwal is now a household name in Nigeria is just but stating the obvious; as already, he is being seen as the face of the new breed of leaders that could take the country out of the woods."
