Why Was Alhaji Kashim Shettima Picked As LEADERSHIP Governor Of The Year 2014?
LEADERSHIP Governor Of The Year 2014 – Alhaji Kashim Shettima
for his steadfastness and abiding faith in his people in the face of terrorism and for being a true servant and comforter despite the terrifying odds, governor Kashim Shettima is leadership governor of the year 2014.
His state was and still is the hotbed of the Boko Haram insurgency that has brought tears, blood and wanton destruction in its wake. That unfortunate situation thrust him in the eye of the storm and has marked a defining moment in the affairs of that state that held a lot of promise for rural development.  In spite of this, the governor has not only identified with the people that voted him into office, but has remained steadfast in his pursuit of the common good (even as the crisis gains a crescendo almost on a daily basis) based on the courage of his conviction – that moments of trials and tribulation and one’s approach to them make the difference between one leader and another. But as the crisis continued to take its toll in a manner that tasked the resolve of even the most committed and gifted leader, Shettima, possibly in exasperation -after the apparent helplessness of the security forces – admitted  publicly that leadership at all levels had failed the people as far as resolving the Boko Haram issue was concerned. The matter-of- fact  manner in which he uttered his regret, particularly after the abduction of the Chibok girls, and his general candour and humility were touching and fully conveyed the feelings of the people. Shettima has remained admirably unrelenting in his pursuit of measures geared towards the elimination of insurgency in the state even as he continues to provide quality leadership to a people struggling to make a meaning out of the whole mess.
