Well done, Buhari salutes Mustapha on UN refugee award

President Muhammadu Buhari has applauded Mr Zannah Mustapha on winning the UNHCR Nansen Refugee Award for 2017.

The President, on behalf of all Nigerians, felicitates with Mustapha on this well-deserved international recognition for his outstanding works on education, peace, reconciliation and stability in the Northeast of the country said a press statement from the State House.

Signed by Special Adviser to the President (Media & Publicity), Femi Adesina, and released on Wednesday, it said Buhari believes that Mustapha, “who has inspired many Nigerians as well as national and international humanitarian organisations, earned the award because of his courage, hard work and extraordinary commitment to the welfare of Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) in the country, even at the risk of his life”.

President Buhari enjoins all Nigerians to emulate the conscientious dedication of a compatriot, who has deployed his God-given talent, time and resources to make life better for those in dire need.
