President Muhammadu Buhari has congratulated Mr Zannah Mustapha on winning the United Nations(UN) HCR Nansen Refugee Award for 2017.
According to a statement by the Special Adviser to the President on Media and publicity, Femi Adesina, the President felicitated with Mustapha on this well-deserved international recognition for his outstanding works on education, peace, reconciliation and stability in the North-East of the country.
Buhari believed 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.
The President enjoined 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.
