On the 24th day of June 2020, Muhammad Musa Abdul LL.B, LL.M, BL, FIMC, CMC, was made the Chairman of the Niger State SELECTION COMMITTEE OF the Federal Government's Special Public works Programme (SPW). At his age, this drew lots of commendation for the Muhammadu Buhari led administration for the confidence reposed in young Nigerians.

What do we know about this young man?

Called to the Nigerian Bar in the year 2012, Muhammad Musa Abdul Esq., is the son of a retired High Court judge. Leading up to his appointment, he has been in active legal practice, with a passion for corporate law. He is described by his colleagues as an easy-going and cheerful individual, passionate about his job and a good listener.

Born in Minna, Niger State to the family of Retired Hon. Justice Musa B. Abdul. He bagged a degree with honours from the prestigious Ahmadu Bello University Zaria in 2011 before going on to attend the Nigerian Law school, Victoria Island Lagos in 2011. In his pursuit for knowledge, he bagged a Masters of Law degree from the University of Illorin, Kwara state in 2017. He is a Fellow of Institute of Management Consultants and Certified Management Specialists by International Council of Management Consulting Institute.

It therefore came as no surprise, when on the 24th Day of June 2020, he emerged as the youngest state chairman of the Special Public Works Programme initiated by the Federal Government of Nigeria. The programme is meant to engage 774,000 unemployed Nigerians for a duration of three (3) months; 1000 from each Local Government Area across Nigeria.

Speaking on his experience handling such a task, he noted that it presented him "an opportunity to serve his state and country". On the challenges, he noted that; "with such an appointment comes immense pressure as a result of the many interests at play." He however stated that the pressure not-withstanding, the committee was able to carry out its mandate successfully, with the complete list for the state compiled and sent to the FCT eight weeks ago.

We do hope that more young Nigerians will be given opportunities as this, as there is no better way to groom future leaders. Wishing him the best in his current and future endeavours.
