Apparently motivated and happy with his giant strides in human capital development and excellence in entrepreneurship, the National Association of Nigerian Students through the office of the Director of Special Duties Monday 28th July 2020 presented a distinguished award of award to the MD/CEO of Kreative Kapintas and Tongley Nigeria Limited Engr. John Dakum in order to spur him for higher accomplishments. In his speech, the Director of Special Duties said it was a well deserving award considering Engr. Dakum’s strong belief in helping the youths find their bearing and become successful in life through the development of skill acquisition and economic interventions. He further said, eminent Nigerians who distinguished themselves in various leadership responsibilities and Engr. Dakum’s unsurpassed performance in many ramifications are acknowledged and appreciated. While congratulating him, he was charged to remain focus in giving back to society.
In his response, Engr. Dakum thanked the students for finding him worthy of the award presentation and admonished them to be worthy ambassadors of Nigeria while working hard to discourage vices in society.
He further said, quoted in parts “All of you are leaders of tomorrow.” And asked rhetorically, “what are you now? What you do today can determine who you will be tomorrow. You should therefore take the future now in political enlightenment and in the spirit of diligence to achieve the best for the country. If you sell your votes you, do not have any basis to complain on government as you have being paid. Therefore, be men of conscience and leaders of thought.”
