The Executive Vice Chairman of the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC), Prof. Umar Danbatta has been commended for empowering women entrepreneurs and boosting security across Nigeria, leveraging telecommunications.

The commendation came from both the Sarkin Bai of Bichi Emirate and District Head of Danbatta, Alhaji Isiyaku Wada Waziri at an event organised by Danbatta (Community) Charity Foundation (DCF) in conjunction with four other organisations including Zauren Tuntuba, a not-for-profit organisation; Danbatta Academic Forum (DAF); Danbatta Reporters and Duniya Ba Hutu, in Danbatta community, Kano at the weekend.

The event was the graduation ceremony of 10 female students from the Muslim Community College of Health Sciences and Technology, Funtua and another 20 empowered females in vocational training focused on tailoring and fashion, all of whom were sponsored by Prof. Danbatta.

The event, which featured the provision of sewing machines and other fashion tools to the two sets of graduands, also saw Prof. Danbatta being conferred with a special recognition award for his immense contribution to the security of the Danbatta community, among other community development initiatives.

Speaking at the event, the traditional rulers argued that one of the most important things anybody can give to Nigerians presently is security because without security, no business will prosper and people will not live in peace.

They both agreed that Prof Danbatta has made so much effort to support the community in the area of security, which is highly valued.

According to the traditional rulers, the local community has witnessed improvement in its security efforts following personal security support received from Prof. Danbatta. “Danbatta has been at the forefront of supporting the community in the area of security by sponsoring vigilante groups and financing all aspects of security planning in the local government area and these efforts have continually yielded positive results,” Waziri said.

He further urged Prof. Danbatta not to relent in his philanthropic gesture of helping the community and acknowledged the critical role which the Danbatta-led NCC is playing in leveraging the use of Information and Communication Technology (ICT), through the Emergency Communication Centres (ECCs) which NCC is implementing across the country, in enhancing the security of lives and property in the country.

Responding, the EVC thanked the Foundation, its partners as well as the community leaders for recognizing his modest contributions to the development of the Danbatta and neighboring community, saying “this gesture can only encourage us to do more for our community.”
