The Director of Financial Services at the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC), Yakubu Gontor, has been honored by the Northern Youth Council of Nigeria (NYCN) for his exemplary professional conduct.

NYCN is the umbrella organization of youths across the 19 northern states, including the Federal Capital Territory Abuja (FCT), with one of its objectives being the promotion of national integration and enhancement of investment in Northern Nigeria for sustainable development.

A delegation of the organization led by the National President, Isa Ododo, presented a plaque for the award of the Garwuwan Matasan Arewa Nigeria (literally translated as ‘Shield of Nigeria Northern Youth’) during a recent visit to Gontor in his office at the Commission in Abuja.

Ododo said the recognition was based on Gonor’s professionalism and his standing as a civil servant of repute who has made himself a role model for the Nigerian youth.

He said the NYCN promotes policy formulation and implementation on issues relating to youth development in Nigeria as well as identifying and recognizing exemplary personalities whose conduct in their professional calling is worthy of emulation by the youths.

“The conferment of the title on our honoree was based on his visionary leadership in the industry as well as his selfless service and immense contributions that have enhanced youth development in the northern states of Nigeria,” Ododo said.

Ododo also used the opportunity to applaud NCC Management for its efforts in enhancing digital skills in Nigerian youth through projects such as the Digital Nigeria Center (DNC), among other interventionist projects, which Ododo said have been put in place to encourage youths to harness their digital skills for self-development.

In his acceptance speech, Gontor appreciated youth organizations for promoting the youths of northern extraction, urging NYCN executives to use their connections and network with the governments across the country to carry out more awareness on skills acquisition and functional education and to be professional in all their dealings.

The recognition by the youth council gives credence to the important role being played by Gontor not only as Director in charge of financial matters at NCC but also as a man of integrity managing all financial matters of the Commission, especially with respect to issues of revenue generation and financial prudence required to sustain the independence of the Commission as an impartial telecom industry regulator and arbiter.
