The Executive Governor of Kaduna State, Governor Nasir El-Rufai has described the Minister of Communications and Digital Economy, Dr Isa Ali Ibrahim Pantami as a top performer in the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari.
The Governor said, “If you will list 2 or 3 performing Ministers in this administration, the Minister, Dr Pantami is at the top. He took a Ministry that was sleeping and upgraded it to a 21st century Ministry”.
Gov El-Rufai made this assertion recently while making his remarks during the Kaduna State Kashim Ibrahim Fellowship Speaker Series Session.
In his interactive session as a guest speaker, the Minister, Pantami emphasised on the importance of mentorship, asserting that, “mentorship is very important, your mentor helps you to see what you can not see in your own vision”, adding that, “always try to be a lifetime student”.
The Minister further stated that for a society to be successful, there is a need to focus more on mentorship for the younger generation.
Pantami reiterated the importance of reading, stressing that, wise and successful people always read, reflect and experiment.
He went further to cite an example with the former President of the United States of America, Mr Barack Obama who always took at least one hour in a day to read.
