“The honour is indeed a source of pride, not only to the professor and his family but also to Nigeria and black Africa in general, as he is the first black African to win such a fellowship from the Chartered Institute of Information Security (CIISEC). I am proud of this meritorious achievement by my dear brother and friend.”
The governor said Zamfara people were at the forefront of those jubilating and celebrating the honour, especially as it came when the people of the state were in dear need of information security technology to curtail banditry in the state.
Pantami has just been admitted as the first and only African Fellow into CIISEC among the 89 recipients of the fellowship.
