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!!!!
