You are someone who practices what you teach and preach as can be seen from your tenure as COCIN General Secretary, three term COCIN President, Principal (Provost) of Theological College of Northern (TCNN) and also a two term President of TEKAN. Your contributions to the growth of the gospel in Plateau State, Northern Region and the entire country is highly recognized and appreciated”.
