Buhari confers national honors on Prof. Ahidjo, others



Prof. Ahmed Ahidjo, the chief medical director of the University of Maiduguri Teaching Hospital has been conferred with a national award by the Federal Government of Nigeria.

The conferment of the award, National Productivity Order of Merit (NPOM), was communicated to the CMD via a letter signed by Mr. Chris Ngige, minister of labour and employment.

NPOM is instituted by the FG to recognize and honor individuals and organizations who have contributed and shown commitment towards high productivity and hard work across the country.

The awardees are selected by the National Production Order of Merit Committee, every year to honor them in view of their contributions to the Nigerian cause.

Prof. Ahidjo became the CMD of UMTH in 2018. Under his administration, the teaching hospital has seen many rapid infrastructural developments and transformations, positioning it to adequately respond to the growing health needs of the people of Borno and the rest of the North East of Nigeria.

The formal issuance of the award medal will take place May 12 in Abuja, Mr. Ngige said in the letter, noting that it will be presided over by President Muhammadu Buhari.

Our reporters constantly face life-threatening challenges, sometimes surviving ambushes, kidnap attempts and attacks by the whiskers as they travel and go into communities to get authentic and firsthand information. But we dare it every day, nonetheless, in order to keep you informed of the true situation of the victims, the trends in the conflicts and ultimately help in peace building processes. But these come at huge cost to us. We are therefore appealing to you to help our cause by donating to us through any of the following means.
