The approval rating across board for the boss of telecommunications sector regulator, the Nigerian Communications Commission(NCC), Professor Umar Garba Danbatta has been pointing northwards since his appointment in 2015, with royalty and more constituencies joining the bandwagon of his teeming admirers, for his top-notch regulation of the industry and his exemplary national development efforts.

Again, Prof. Danbatta, the Executive Vice Chairman and Chief Executive Officer(EVC/CEO) of the NCC, has received commendation for his role in community and national development through his Danbatta Charity Foundation (DCF), a non-profit organisation.

The Sarki Bai of Bichi and District Head of Danbatta, Alhaji Isyaku Wada Waziri and other beneficiaries of the DCF gave the commendation during the Quranic Graduation Ceremony of 21 students of Garkuwa Usman Community Primary School Islamiya, Danbatta Local Government Area, Kano State, at the weekend.

While commending Danbatta for being a pillar of support for the nation’s development, Alh. Waziri particularly praised him for the role he was playing at ensuring security in the local government among numerous other interventions in education, health and youth employment.

“We are blessed to have someone like Prof. Danbatta, who has shown remarkable interest in the development of Danbatta. We can’t thank him enough for what he is doing at the grassroots. And he is doing us proud at the national level as our worthy ambassador,” said the traditional ruler.

Fielding questions from newsmen, Danbatta disclosed that the foundation was currently sponsoring 10 young women studying different health-related courses at the Muslim Community College of Health, Sciences and Technology, Funtua, Kano, as part of efforts to empower members of the community through education and technology.

He said the foundation had, for 15 years, sponsored different skill acquisition programmes, while a dialysis machine had been donated to the Aminu Kano Teaching Hospital (AKTH), among other interventions.

“This school is one of the initiatives of Danbatta charity foundation. It is intended to be a source of support to our immediate community and the larger society in general, having, emulated the good examples set by other well-meaning Nigerians,” Danbatta said.

The NCC boss, subsequently, called on well-meaning Nigerians to embark on community development activities in order to get rewards from Almighty God.
