The Keffi country home of Alhaji ...
www.abdullahiadamu.net, 1 July 2005 [cached]
The Keffi country home of Alhaji Abdullahi Adamu, Executive Governor of Nasarawa State, north central Nigeria, was a beehive of activities on May 30, a day declared by the Federal Government as a public holiday to commemorate Nigeria's Democracy Day (the actual Democracy Day, May 29, fell on a Sunday). Within and outside his deluxe courtyard, contractors, consultants, village kinsmen, state government officials, as well as enterprising young men and women gathered in groups waiting for their turn to see the governor.
The visitors had nothing to do with any social or state engagement but were there to solicit for one executive favour or the other, business deal or to simply engage in normal consultations. It would have been understandable to find such crowd at the Government House, Lafia, but certainly not at the governor's private residence in Keffi on a day Nigerians were supposed to rest. The puzzle however was not so much about the crowd but how Governor Adamu could have attended to every one of them without breaking down. But then the energetic governor is well acknowledged as a master of the game and has been at it in the last six years.
Without discrimination and with a large appetite for accommodating every shade of visitors, provided they have the patience to wait for their turn, Adamu attends to all with equal attention. This is obviously a rare quality with most politicians but a virtue with proven leaders. Part of this enviable trait in Adamu could be traced to his fervent belief in a democratic system that should be able to address issues that would improve the lot of the citizens. For him everybody counts in democratic politics and so he never hesitates to personally attend to all who come to him. "It is a lesson this generation of political leaders in our country can only ignore at their own political peril," Adamu once stated in his welcome address to Bill Clinton, former President of the United States, who visited Nasarawa and some other parts of Nigeria shortly before leaving office in 2001.
...
Doing this is seemingly easy for Adamu, thanks to his guiding principles - service and humility. Says the governor: "If you want people to identify with you, you do what you think is good and keep going. Someday, somewhere, somebody will identify the fact that there is somebody here but again, one is not taught to blow his own trumpet. When you combine these two things - service and humility - the chances are that people will appreciate you and would see a partner with whom to do business, especially one they can trust and relate with."
So far it has worked for him and fired with the vision to leave a lasting legacy in Nasarawa State, Adamu has made tremendous strides albeit with limited resources.
...
"We have launched a scheme to boost primary school enrolment throughout the state," Adamu says.
...
Governor Adamu shows similar commitment to potable water supply. He has employed solar-powered technology to provide potable water to the various communities.
...
A democrat to the core, Adamu is also a nationalist and a patriot who is deeply committed to the indivisibility of Nigeria. On occasions when he is called upon to make a speech, he shows a profound grasp of politics in Nigeria and is ever ready to share his views with like minds. As it is common with visionary leaders, those who should know better sometimes misconstrue his views.
...
The first two years of Obasanjo's government, which witnessed a steady flow of complaints from northerners, saw Adamu at his loyal best.
...
Not many would agree with him but, then, Governor Adamu is not one to call a spade by another name just to be popular. And who says he is not popular? Aside from Adamu's commitment to service and humility, his detribalised nature, deep humanity and breadth of vision tend to inspire widespread confidence beyond the borders of Nasarawa State. Adamu is widely respected among his fellow governors, who elected him chairman of the Governors Forum, a position in which he acquitted himself well till the end of his tenure. He also enjoys very close relations with President Obasanjo.
Only recently, Adamu was conferred with the highly regarded title of Aare Obateru of the Source by His Royal Highness, Oba Okunade Sijuwade Olubushe II of Ile-Ife, Osun State, in the southwest.
...
That, though, wasn't the first time Adamu was receiving such an honour from a traditional ruler.
