Governor Aminu Bello Masari has won year 2016 “COURAGE IN LEADERSHIP AWARD” from The Sun Newspapers.
In an address while presenting the nomination letter, the Managing Director/Editor-in-chief Mr. Eric Osagie, said the selection process was painstaking and robust, as the Board of Editors considered Governor Masari for the award based on his past performance as the Speaker of the House of Representatives and the courageous steps he is now taking to turn around the fortunes of Katsina State to the best ever.
According to him, the nominations were debated and where the panelists were not unanimous in their choice, a decision was reached by vote.
Mr. Osagie emphasized that the rigorous process was a tradition, which had preserved the integrity of the awards since inception in 2003.
KATSINA POST checks revealed that KATSINA State ex-Governor Ibrahim Shema was sometimes in May, 2015 honoured with The Sun Outstanding Performance Exit Award.
