Ogun State Governor, Prince Dapo Abiodun, has congratulated the Minister of Communications and Digital Economy, Prof. Isa Ali Ibrahim Pantami, on his conferment with a Fellowship status by Chartered Institute of Information Security (CIISec).
The governor, who said he was elated with the news, said it is a feat that is worthy of felicitations.
Speaking via a statement issued by his Chief Press Secretary, Kunle Somorin, an elated Governor Abiodun said Pantami has made, not only himself proud, but the nation and entire black race.
“This is a historic feat, it’s not a mean achievement, and I’m not surprised that my friend and brother got the recognition.”
Pantami had been admitted as the first and only African Fellow into CIISec among the 89 recipients of the fellowship.
The governor said it is not surprising, considering the level of dedication and commitment that the minister puts into his job.
“He has passion for whatever he does; he is a brilliant man and not one to take a job for just the want of it.
“Today, in the global cyber space, Pantami is a major player. This is a welcome development as it will help in developing our IT sector.
“As such, we must also congratulate the CIISec for being able to recognise those that deserve to be honoured.”
Governor Abiodun however urged the minister to do more and not rest on his oars, saying this is an indication of more successful ventures.
