PDP Senatorial Candidate.
A positive proactive and result driven individual with high success rate in achieving profitable growth through improving effectiveness and efficiently aligning organizational wants and needs of clients and vice versa in order to achieve a consistent high level of service delivery and to attain market leadership in a complex environment. An intuitive team player with demonstrable ability to work well with multiple levels whilst adhering to hierachical business ethics to steep positive energy and enthusiasm onto motivating team members to build strong relationship towards meeting set objectives.
I was born on April 17, 1973 in the city of Kaduna to the family of Alhaji Bawa Garba, Turakin Garkida.
My early education began at Kaduna Polytechnic Staff School in 1980 where I enjoyed a steady and undisrupted progress in my educational endeavor to Ahmadu Bello University where I obtained a Bachelor’s Degree in Geography and Master’s Degree in International Relations and Diplomacy.
Upon the completion of my university education, I was armed with years of knowledge derived from learning business from my father, who is an astute businessman and one of Nigeria’s foremost educationists from which I established my own firm called GSM.com and served as the Managing Director between 2002 to 2005. Later in 2005, Top Desk International Limited was established, a business consultancy and procurement firm, also co-founded Agric General Manager Limited where I served as General Manager.I joined politics in 2000 when I started working with President Muhammadu Buhari under the membership of All Peoples Party (APP) which was later transitioned into the All Nigerian Peoples Party (ANPP) and was a founding member of the Congress for Progressive Change (CPC) in Kaduna State. With about a decade of insight into various sectors, especially communications, and full understanding of the limitations of a private individual in solving some of the challenges the country is faced with, I decided to be more actively involved in politics in 2010, and subsequently resigned all corporate and businesses positions I occupied.
In 2010, I served as the caretaker organizing secretary of the Congress for Progressive Change (CPC) and subsequently as Campaign Coordinator for the Kaduna state chapter of President Muhammadu Buhari’s presidential campaign in 2011, while also seeking to represent the people of Kaduna North in the House of Representatives. Convinced of my political adroitness, genuine love for the people and will to bring about desired change, the people of Kaduna North Federal constituency, I was elected as a representative in the Nigerian House of Representatives in 2011 where I served till 2015.As a member of the House, I made significant contributions to Nigeria’s Information, Communication and Technology sector both at the industry and grassroots level. Appointed as Deputy Chairman of House Committee on Communication, alongside with my colleagues where we performed crucial oversight functions which led to positive growth and reforms of the sector.
At the grassroots level, in a bid to promote ICT in my constituency and bring to my people, especially the youths, up to speed with obtainable standards in the world, I led various changes including the building of an ICT centre in Kaduna State University and the installation of 250 units of computer systems, internet and interconnecting devices toppled with high end ICT facilities, power generator and solar borehole in the same institution. I also insured the installation of computers and other ICT facilities in schools such as GSS day (boys) Doka, Kaduna, GSS U/Sarki Kaduna, GSS Independence way Kaduna, Sardauna Memorial College Kaduna, and many others. From 2012 till date, over 1500 students benefitted from my scholarship program on information and communication.
My contribution to the people of my constituency were not limited to ICT alone as other sectors such health, water and education are affected immensely. To improve learning through the provision of learning aids and facilities and a conducive environment, I renovated several class rooms and staff offices in U/Rimi Low Cost Model primary school Kaduna, built additional class rooms, toilets and staff room in Shehu Abdullahi college, Maiburji ward Kaduna, completed Islamiyya school U/Rimi Kaduna, donated 220 double seater desks and chairs each to schools including Rimi College Kaduna, GSS Dalet barrack kawo Kaduna, L.E.A. primary school Malali and G.S.S Badarawa, and sponsored over 1000 students on tutorials and payments of examinations such as WAEC, NECO and JAMB from 2012 till date. I also constructed boreholes in various communities in Kaduna North to provide access to clean water.I founded "The Shehu ABG Foundation" which offers completely free services and has trained hundreds of young people from 2009 till date and consistently sponsored two outreach programmes every year, with 80-100 people benefitting from each. Every year from 2011 to date, women and youths are trained in various skills and empowered them with start-up funds.
I believed that my love for quality, equal opportunity and leadership style endeared me greatly to my people which in 2014, I was honoured by my then political party, APC Kaduna Chapter, for showing “exemplary and visionary leadership” and for my absolute commitment to uplifting the people whom I represent. In 2012, I sponsored a medical outreach programme from which over 10,000 people benefitted. This was commissioned by the then Speaker (and now governor of Sokoto State), Rt. Hon. Aminu Waziri Tambuwal. In continuation of this tradition of reaching out to people who most required assistance, I sponsored another medical outreach in 2017, which over 5,000 people also benefitted from.Presently, I serve as the Special Adviser on Special Duties to the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Rt. Hon. Yakubu Dogara.
