Zamfara State Governor, Matawalle Honoured With Doctorate By Togo University

The University of Science, Administration and Commerce, Lomé, Republic of Togo, on Saturday conferred an Honorary Doctorate Degree in ‘Leadership and Administration’ on Gov. Bello Matawalle of Zamfara.
The Director-General of Media, Public Enlightenment and Communications to the Governor, Malam Yusuf Idris, disclosed this in a statement made available to journalists in Gusau on Saturday.

Idris said the award was received by the Deputy Chief of Staff to the governor, Dr Bashir Maru, who led a high-powered delegation of four persons to Lome for the event.

He stated that the conferment of the Doctor Honoris Causa on Matawalle was in recognition of the “governor’s passion, commitment and great enthusiasm in providing strategic leadership and selfless service to the people of the state and the Nigerian nation in general.”

Matawalle, while thanking the institution’s Governing Council and its management for finding him worthy of the award, offered to explore more areas of cooperation with the university.

He also said that his administration had in the last 17 months vigorously pursued the enthronement of peace in the state which was hitherto characterised by banditry, kidnapping, cattle rustling and other criminal activities.

Matawalle observed that the recognition and conferment of the Honorary Doctorate Decree may have arisen from his efforts in the return of peace and other legal business and social activities in the state which have now made it attractive to investors within and outside the state.
