Why Was Gimba Ya’u Kumo Picked As LEADERSHIP Public Officer Of The Year 2014?
LEADERSHIP Public Officer Of The Year 2014 – Gimba Ya’u Kumo (MD/CEO, Federal Mortgage Bank Of Nigeria, FMBN)
For making housing finance a central issue in the nation’s economic development, helping to expand access to mortgage finance and improving the coverage rate from 25 percent to 40 percent in three years, Gimba Ya’u Kumo is LEADERSHIP Public Officer of the Year 2014.
In arriving at the decision, the editors recalled that in the last three years, Kumo through his well thought out initiatives as the Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer of the Federal Mortgage Bank Of Nigeria (FMBN), has been able to prove that housing and housing finance are key drivers of economic development, political stability and contribute a huge part to the nation’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP). To appreciate the good work Kumo is doing at FMBN, it is interesting to note that before now the home ownership rate was a paltry 25 per cent. But that has improved to 40 per cent. Kumo was born on November 5, 1959 in Gombe, Gombe State.  He holds a B.sc in Business Administration from Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria in 1983 and a Master’s degree in Business Administration and Management (MBA) from Abubakar Tafawa Balewa University, Bauchi in 1999.
