Shamsuddeen Mohammed: Society engineer with kindness
Sir: In every human environment, there exist some people whose character is magnificently unparalleled and worthy of emulation. They possess qualities that endear them to the heart of many, thereby inadvertently pulling people towards them as magnet does to iron. I am making allusion to Engr. Shamsuddeen Bala Mohammed, a name that rings a bell in the minds of everyone living in Bauchi State.
Born and raised in a well respected family background from the ancient village of Duguri, Alkaleri Council of Bauchi State, Shamsuddeen is privileged to be the son of his Excellency the people’s governor, Senator Bala Mohammed. Shamsudden has received a good parental upbringing from his parents, that’s why he is disciplined enough and that’s how the famous name “Shamoo Na Kowa” came about. His generosity, kindness and tireless efforts towards ensuring the welfare and well-being of people started when he was in school. He rendered support to students who could not afford to sponsor their education. Before he finished his studies, he provided the future of many youths by paying their tuition fees, which opened the door for their intellectual journey. Shamsudeen becomes a mirror to the youths of Bauchi.
Shamsuddeen has been trained by various prestigious institutions, which afforded him wealth of experience in various endeavours of life. And the fact that he is passionate about helping the masses further beautifies his life.
As a director in Almuhibbah Foundation, he enrolled youths into the foundation that renders help to the vulnerable or less privileged. He sponsored students to study in various institutions; he supports patients to get healthy by taking care of their medication bills and he provides job opportunity to our teeming youth by engaging them to his services at the foundation, which he operated not solely for profit making but rather to boost the economic and living condition of the masses. The foundation is the best of its kind in terms of youth empowerment and gender equality.
It was not surprising that the emirate council turbanned him as DanGaladiman Duguri, because he is worthy enough and a true son of Bauchi. Around 2017, he was engaged with school registration and he paid for almost everybody around.
The conferment of the title of Dangaladiman Duguri is a well deserved title and I have the belief that Shamsuddeen will deliver to the best of his ability with fitness and grace. May the Almighty continue to be with him.
