It is often said that the happiest people are not those getting more, but those giving more. Giving is living. The saying has never been truer than in the case of Alhaji Momoh Jibrin, a Kogite and indeed, Nigeria’s finest philanthropist.
He is the immediate past Accountant General of Kogi state and a Frontline Governorship Aspirant on the platform of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC.
However, his humanitarian service predates his voyage into politics and based on available records, his philanthropic interventions have no political coloration. To him, humanity remains his constituency without recourse to the region of origin and the religions of the beneficiaries of his humanitarian services.
Alhaji Jibrin never misses an opportunity to lend assistance to people over life’s challenges whenever he is approached. To some people, he is a succour donor while others see him as a God ordained pain reliever. He is an epitome of selflessness and a good example of generosity. In his DNA lies humanitarian services as he sees service to humanity as a core calling.
As one who identifies with people in their moment of challenges, Alhaji Jibrin recently embarked on a massive distribution of foodstuff (rice) across the three senatorial districts in Kogi state as part of his contributions during the holy month of Ramadan.
The aim of the foodstuff palliative, according to some reports from his campaign team, was to enable the Muslim faithfuls in the Confluence State to enjoy Ramadan.
It is the sheer belief of Alhaji Jibrin that everyone lives comfortably and have access to basic needs of life. He always wants to create a world of hope where everyone in need is provided with resources and opportunities to thrive seamlessly.
There is no doubt that his quest to become the next governor of Kogi state, if by God’s grace he comes out victorious in the April 14 primary election of his party, is mainly to have another platform to serve the good people of Kogi state with love, integrity and fairness.
Since the Hallmark of leadership is anchored on service, the people of Kogi state now have a man who does not only understand what leadership means but one who has always served mankind diligently and faithfully whenever he has opportunity to do so.
Dear Kogites, I present to you Alhaji Jibrin Momoh, a selfless leader who is overly committed to your present welfare and a secured future.
