Governor Murtala Nyako of Adamawa State has been presented an award as Ambassador of Neighbour-To- Neighbour, N2N, for his contributions to the activities of N2N and for distinguishing himself in grassroots mobilisation.
Presenting the award on behalf of N2N in Yola, the Adamawa State capital, Dr. Nuhu Zagbayi, former deputy governor of Niger State who was the North Central coordinator of N2N during the presidential election, said that Governor Nyako had helped the state chapter of the organisation to perform its duties well.
Dr Zagbayi said N2N was reorganising its state, local government and ward structures with a view to strengthening them to mobilise Nigerians to participate actively in government to ensure the success of the transformation agenda.
Earlier, the Project Director of N2N, Rima Shawulu Kwewum said Governor Nyako and other prominent Nigerians were honoured as ambassadors of Neighbour to Neighbour for the roles they played towards the achievement of its objective of mobilizing grassroots support for President Goodluck Jonathan.
According to Mr. Shawulu, N2N transited from a campaign organization to an NGO committed to providing veritable bridge between the government and the governed.
It also transformed into a watchdog to ensure adequate information for good governance and accountability.
Responding, the Executive Governor Nyako commended the initiators of N2N for the vision and commitment to the Transmission agenda.
He challenged them to continue in their patriotic zeal and grassroots mobilization.
Nyako expressed appreciation for the award stating that it was not for him alone, but the entire good people of Adamawa State.
The Field officer of Adamawa State, Mr. Friday Tumbo was also honoured for his commitment to duty.
The N2N delegation included Kare Yekwe, Hon. Jonathan Asake and Hon. Yakubu Dati.
