Lafiagi Born ABU Faculty Of Law Best Graduate revealed the secret of his success

 HARUNA MANZUMA is from 'Emi' Man-Quranu compound, Tiffin-yekogi, Lafiagi. He bagged 4.46 CGPA to emerge ABU Faculty of Law Best Graduate at the university's 41st convocation. In this interview with USMAN HARUNA, LADDU Ass. National Publicity Secretary, the genius revealed the secret of his success. Excerpts.



I am Haruna Usman, LADDU Ass. National Publicity Secretary, may I meet you sir?

Yes, sure!


 What is your full name and where are you  from?

My full name is HARUNA MANZUMA. I am from 'Emi' Man-Quranu compound, Tiffin-yekogi, Lafiagi.


MANZUMA HARUNA


Which department did you graduate from?

I graduated from Islamic Law Department. Though the certificate is tagged Bachelor of Laws (with specialization in Islamic Law).

You are the best Faculty of Law Graduate from ABU 41st convocation, what is your CGPA?

My CGPA is 4.46.

How did you emerge at 4.46 CGPA? What has always been your GPA?

I made it with prayers, dedication and hard work. My GPA in first semester 100L was 3.65 and I told myself I can do more. So when I put more effort, I got 4.27 second semester. And i didn't write less a 4 point since then till I rose to 4.46 and  graduated same.

That is wow! Typically, how many hours do you read in a day?

I don't have specific hours I read in a day. I rather used to set daily target and stopped reading whenever the targeted goal for the day is achieved.
In a nutshell, the daily goal is that I must read what ever am taught in a day, on that same day. Then go over it again by weekends. So during exams, am always revising.

Do you incorporate your study with other activities?

Oh yes! I participated fully in chambers activities which is an extra curriculum activity. I even contested in an election for the Principal Partner of Attorneys Chambers and lost. I also participated as a campaign manager to two aspirants in our Students Representative Council's election. The female won, the male lost.
I also had a lot of mentees whom I tutored based on my schedule.
It was a good

What was your worst moment during your study? 

I can only mention of 2nd semester 300L when i took six courses, got five A's and one D (in criminal law).
It does not commensurate with other courses, though I didn't take any action.

You are from Lafiagi. A Big city though, but the people don't study Law that much. What motivated you to study Law?

Studying law was never in my diary. My chosen course was economics. I have an NCE in Economics and Political Science from College of Education, Oro, Kwara State. I even applied to many Nigerian universities to study B.Ed in Economics, but was not admitted.

So, two of my friends; Mahmud Musa Danjuma  Ph.D (in view) and Muhammad Alhaji Zaguru, on different sittings suggested that I should apply for law through JAMB.
So, I did and got admitted. Mahmud lectures Arabic, at the Faculty of Art, University of Ilorin.

Did you pass your SSCE, JAMB and UTME excellently?

My SSCE was that of an average student.

What of JAMB?

It was that of an average student too. I got 202 in JAMB, 240 in POST-JAMB. Giving me a total average of 221.

Are you a born genius? 

Not really. Am just blessed with 'perseverance'. I don't run away from challenges, and with prayers from my Mum (R.I.P), I will always emerge victor.

Have you been leading up your previous schools? Like secondary.

No! Rather I have always been 'among' those leading in my class.

As ABU best graduating faculty of Law student, do you think you are on the same level academically compared to brilliant students from top rated schools like Oxford University?

Of course yes!
With 23 professors (as at when I graduated) and others: Readers, Doctors, LLM holders, faculty of law can be said to be one of faculties of law well embellished with adequate human resources. This is the faculty I emerged its best graduating student amidst over 300 students.

So, if with some Nigerian-induced-hindrances, I was able to achieve this, then, devoid of those hindrances, I believe I will be on a higher level amidst brilliant students from universities like Oxford or Harvard.

I added Harvard University because that is where I wish to have my LL.M and Ph.D if Allah wishes.

What would be your advice to students?

My advice for all students is to be prayerful, hardworking, dedicated and devoted... And the sky shall be their stepping stone. For whoever falls in love with reading, shall never be heart broken.

Thank you LADDU ASST. National P.R.O!

HAPPY 70th BIRTHDAY TO KPOTUN OF LAFIAGI

TRIBUTE TO ONE OF OUR ELDERS

Penned ✒  by Isa Bello



He is a foremost Business Administrator, an alumnus of GSS Ilorin, Ahmadu Bello University and Bayero University Kano.

One of the pace setters of university education in our community,  a feat meant for the brilliant ones with intellectual capacity. The sound foundation puts him in good stead for the challenges ahead in his professional calling.

He was a pioneer member of the National Youth Service Corps  (NYSC) in 1973 after which he had a stint at Kwara Midland stores, later an unblemished and meritorious service at Structec, subsidiary of a French Multinational Conglomerate,  CFAO spanning over thirty years, rising to the peak as General Manager. His ascendancy to the top echelon wasn't by accident, but a combination of hard work and management acumen.

His unwavering commitment to the development of our emirate spurred him to take a shot at LADDU presidency, our foremost umbrella organisation, where his administrative tenacity and wealth of experience were brought to bear in piloting the affairs of the Union to the next level (greater heights),  making it a cynosure of all eyes.

He is so many things to so many people,  an icon, a community leader with high pedigree, a consummate administrator, a man of impeccable personality, an epitome of humility and a gentle man par excellence. He is a bridge builder, who gives respect to all irrespective of age and status, this simplistic nature endeared  him to all and sundry. Although blue blood by birth but down to earth by nature,  whose shinning example is worthy of emulation. He is indeed an epitome of benevolent moral rectitude.

Because of the importance of education as a catalyst for development,  he was visionary in the establishment of the first nursery and primary school in the emirate (Maraba), laying the foundation for the current proliferation.

He holds the prestigious royal traditional title of Kpotun of Lafiagi. Please join me to appreciate and celebrate a worthy ambassador of our time who has distinguished himself with footprints on the sands of time, Alhaji Abdulrahman Manzuma as he joins the septuagenarian club. We wish you happy birthday, May Allah SWT continue to grant you long life in sound health for the benefit of self and service to humanity.

Alhamdulillah for the attainment of platinum jubilee!

HBD Sir! YANMA!!!!

Dr. Mann Shaaba: A Personal Tribute

      That Dr Man Shaaba loved Lafiagi was never in doubt. Nothing best expressed this than my encounter with him in 2016. Prior to that fateful day I had never had a one on one discussion with him. I had always see him afar as a big brother from my community.
However this perception of him by me changed when I attended the Annual Conference of Registrars of Colleges of Education at the campus of Federal College of Education,  Kontagora. Like my brother Dr. Toyin Jibril told me afterwards, as soon as Dr Man Shaaba got wind of my presence in their College he became restless  and animated and told Dr Toyin that I must not leave Kontagora without him seeing me. He literally ordered Dr Toyin to keep watch on the venue of the Conference and that as soon as we were free he must be informed.
He came all the way to meet me at the hall and as soon as he sighted me he was all over me like someone who has found his long lost prodigal brother. He dragged me to his office and ordered food for me. Despite my plea that we have been well feted to a sumptuous meal by our host, the Registrar of FGC Kontagora,  Dr. Shaaba insisted that I must taste even a morsel of the food because he can never forgive himself if I came all the way from Lafiagi to Kontagora without him entertaining me.
He told me how impressed he was that I could summon    courage to leave the comfort of my then posting to Lagos as the Kwara State Government Liaison officer and accepted to serve in the then crisis ridden Kwara State College of Education (Technical), Lafiagi as a stop gap Registrar. I told him the oppurtunity to give a little back to my community far outweighs whatever personal sacrifices I had to endure.
He then launched into a session of both prayers for my success and admonitions on how to navigate the rather atrocious academic environment I found myself in compared to the more rancour free mainstream civil service from where I was coming.
I came out of that encounter with Dr Shaaba more fortified and encouraged to fulfil the expectations of those who found me worthy to be singled out to carry out that assignment for my community.  I was also elated and proud to observe the reverence, awe, respect and love which the staff and students of his department held and have for Dr Shaaba. I saw a man who loves his job as a teacher and guardian,  a man who wished the best for his community and a man who is humane and want the best for a fellow human being.
We exchanged numbers that day and not a single month passed without me receiving a call from him even long after I've served my two years secondment to KWCOETL.
May Allah (SWA) grant the beautiful soul of Dr Shaaba eternal peace and favour and reward him with His bountiful mercy, light and admittance to Jannatul firdaous.  May Allah also give succor to his immediate family and Lafiagi Community for this great lost.

 Sambo Magaji

[4/16, 9:53 PM] ‪+234 803 459 ****: Let me also share my last encountered with Dr ManShaaba.
It was at the Firdau prayer of late Mother of Sarkin Mallami Yagba. He was to give vote of thanks after the ceremony.
He admitted that the traditional title holders of nowadays only enjoy the prestige that comes with the title without paying routine homage to the custodian and the one who bestowed the title on them HRH the Emir of Lafiagi.
He said a number of them are guilty of this deviant community attitude and that the reps of HRH present at the occasion should tender apology to Baba unbehalf of All the erring titled holders.
It takes a complete gentleman to public admit and tendered apology. That very day I dough my hate for his courageous pronouncement.
I wish I can write more but couldn't hold back my tears
He run for early death yet he die not old
Allah grant him Aljanah firdaus

[4/16, 10:03 PM] ‪+234 703 116 ****: May his gentle soul rest in perfect peace and Allah grant him aljana firdausi

[4/16, 10:32 PM] ‪+234 706 672 ****: May Allah be pleased with him. I had no opportunity of meeting with him, but I knew him through his students and publications. He was a notable reference to kindness, steadfastness, humility, audibility and righteousness that Lafiagi people are known with. My condolences to the entire Emirate.

[4/16, 10:38 PM] ‪+234 803 420 ****: Dr Shaaba gone fore ever.
What a monumental loss to Lafiagi in particular and Nupe in general.
His death can be likened to the fall of a palm tree you can imagine the unquantifiable loss.
May the soul of Dr Mohammed Shaaba Baganko rests in peace. And may Allahu Tahalla accord him Al Jannah firdous as his final abode.
Ameena kunfayankun

[4/16, 11:06 PM] ‪+234 803 611 ****: May his soul rest in peace and granted him Aljanah Firdaus

[4/16, 11:09 PM] ‪+234 806 352 ****: Dr SHAABA we shall miss you and your genereousi

[4/16, 11:10 PM] ‪+234 808 878 ****: May Allah forgive his shortcomings and grant him aljanna fidaus

[4/16, 11:11 PM] ‪+234 806 352 ****: Dr Muhammad Shaaba we shall miss you and your generosity .Allah grant you HIS mercy to rest you in aljana Firdausi .Amin

[4/16, 11:12 PM] ‪+234 803 625 ****: Inna lillahi wa'inna illaihim raji'un. May Allah (SWT) forgive him and admit him into Aljanat firdaus, amin.

[4/16, 11:29 PM] ‪+234 813 848 ****: May Allah forgive him and his short coming

[4/17, 12:45 AM] ‪+234 803 302 ****: Dr Shaaba Baganko was in sokoto university with us.He stays off campus and was always with our co landlord in sokoto Engineer Ndakozhiri Babasansaniko.They are so close and very friendly.Yashaaba always advises us to be serious with our books and all the intellectual wizardry started from his school days.Engineer Baba,Allah forgive your very close friend and give him rest.Give all lafiagi community fortitude to bear the lost.Allah accept his good deeds and overlooks his mistakes. He was indeed a very big loss to us all.

I view it as another opportunity to serve humanity, hence, make positive impacts to the development of my fatherland and my motherland.

Despite being happy that I am the new Assistant National Publicity Secretary of the exalted Union, I am saddened by  what transpired at the event. Excluding the presence of little children who graced the occasion with their parents, I was not only the youngest member of the Executive Council, but also the youngest member of the Congress. How bad can it be? Where are our youths? Are youths relegated to the social media alone to be cyber warriors?

The youths need to learn two basic lessons from my inclusion as an Exco in the union. In the first place, THE ELDERS DON'T STOP ANY YOUTH FROM BEING PART OF DECISION MAKING PROCESS and  the YOUTHS NEED NOT TO FIGHT THE ELDERS BECAUSE WE WANT TO BRING IN INNOVATIVE IDEAS.

It is indeed crystal that if the elders do not want to welcome the youths to their midst, Usman Haruna won't be a LADDU Excos at 25 Years Old. It pertinent to reiterate that I was not forced , coerced or sponsored by anyone to contest for the post in the convention.  What i did was to contact the EL-COMM for procurement of nomination form, I returned the filled form and subsequently contested without any ulterior motives. My brothers, in any occasion where the elders deny you inclusion, challenge the status quo, not by fighting them, but, by following due processes.

I believe the elders sent us to school to  learn so that we can bring innovations not for us to come and fight them when they err. Thus, 'What dialogue cannot solve, violence cannot solve it'. Let us learn to respect the elders at all times, let us learn to approach them and even learn to get what belong to us. I want you to know that the Man you are fighting or attacking is someone's Father, Uncle and even Grandfather, the same way as your own father or Uncles and the same way you will also become a father of the society someday. What you do to them, May be done for yours or even to you when it's your time.

Let us learn to embrace peace at all times, let us exhibit standard behaviors that are not only commendable and recommendable, but also worthy of emulation. Let us be good ambassadors to  our families, our societies and the generality of humanity.
