Some young entrepreneurs in Maradi, Niger Republic, have commended the Founder and Proprietor of Maryam Abacha American University, Prof Adamu Abubakar Gwarzo for bringing development to Maradi through the establishment of the famous University.
One of the entrepreneurs, Alhaji Abdul Kadeer Sani Gwanda, made the remark at a special reception organised by the businessmen in honour of Prof. Gwarzo in Maradi, Niger Republic on Saturday.
He noted that the establishment of Maryam Abacha American University in Maradi had not only brought physical development but had boosted socio-economic activities of the people of the state.
He said the decision to honour Prof Gwarzo was borne out of his contributions to the economic growth and development of Maradi town in particular and Niger Republic in general.
He said the people of Maradi especially the business community would continue to appreciate his contributions towards the economic growth and development of the town.
Sani Gwanda, who is the proprietor of a Plaza in Maradi, said Prof Gwarzo deserved to be honoured in view of the support he had been giving to youths as well as the poor and other vulnerable persons in the town.
“Prof Gwarzo is somebody who is kind and humane. The support and assistance he has been giving to our people cannot be quantified.
“He is a special person who is always ready to support youths to improve their social and economic status in the society.
“Visitors may not tell you who is Prof Gwarzo but we are in the best position to know and tell you who he is. We cannot pay him only God Almighty can pay him,” he said.
He, therefore, called on the government and people of Niger Republic to continue to support him (Prof Gwarzo) to enable him achieve the desired objective.
“So Prof Gwarzo has the people of Maradi at heart otherwise he could have established the university elsewhere if he so wished,” he added.
DESERT HERALD reports that Prof Gwarzo in his remark thank the group of the entrepreneurs for recognizing efforts and for the honour done to him.
He thanked Allah for making it possible to establish the university and for the impact the institution has continued to have on the economy of both countries and the educational pursuit of the younger generation.
