The Northern Youth Council of Nigeria, an umbrella body of youths across the 19 northern states including Federal Capital Territory Abuja (FCT), has conferred Sir Ahmadu Bello Award of GARWUWAN Matasan Arewa Nigeria (Shield of Nigeria Northern Youth) on the Primate, Church of Nigeria (Anglican Communion), Most Rev’d Henry Ndukuba.

The conferment held on October 12, 2020 in his office in Abuja, where he received the Platinum leadership award through a delegation led by Comrade Amb. Salihu Yusuf.


A citation on the Primate read by Comrade Stephen, reads in part: “From whatever perspective you chose to look at him, Most Rev’d Henry C. Ndukuba has made a voyage in the leadership industry with a class of touch. He is one of the most professionals whose efficiency, knowledge, diligence and professionalism have become another definition of standard in the leadership industry. Men of unique achievement are celebrated anywhere in the world. When their values are appreciated, they are spurred to do more, more so, they are encouraged to inspire the younger generation. He is an excellent and a special specimen of an extraordinary leadership expert, who looks simple, humble and gentle; his appearance is a blend of intellect and professionalism. Equipped with a disciplined character, this leadership surgeon has perfected the act of working silently, while his accomplishment speaks for him. He is one of the best minds with practical ideas as a system expert.

“Most Revd Henry C. Ndukuba is the future in the present, a very colourful individual and one of the most noticeable representatives of our generation. He is a marvellous human being, an equivalent of an entire library of success, a community builder, an efficient team player, a quintessential leader, an exceptional polyglot and leadership navigator. A signature of success, compassionate leader, pace-setter, role model, beacon of hope, pillar of support, a cultured and cultivated acting tycoon. A stimulant in the leadership growth, an enterprising young man, a central fugal force in the religious department, a man who changed the skyline of how a principal leader should be.


“In the words of Ralph W. Emerson, ‘you indeed deserve every honour that is accorded to you because greatness is a property for which no man can receive credit too soon; it must be possessed long before it is acknowledged.”

In his response, the Primate expressed happiness that the Council had chosen to recognise him not for money, but as a result of his leadership virtues. He promised to stand with the youths, as long as God gives him the opportunity. He promised to stand by the youths, work and speak for them as long as God gives him the opportunity to do so.

Ndukuba said: “We promise to stand by the youths, we promise to work with the youths, and we promise to speak for the youths, so long as God gives us the opportunity.”


Head of the Anglican Church in Nigeria urged the officials of the group to note that they are not just leaders of tomorrow, but leaders of today; adding that they should involve themselves in politics.

He appealed to the Nigerian youths to “be involved in politics, in the right way, not as thugs, and not as those who will be fighting for those who think that power belongs to them.”

Quoting from the scriptures to buttress his point that power belongs to God and not to any man/class, the Bishop of Abuja expressed hope that Nigerian youths would get involved in politics, leadership and eventually take on the leadership of the country.
