Al - Makura: From America with humility

Written by 

The British Airline landed exactly 5:13am and few minutes later, Governor Umaru Tanko Al - makura came out from the arrival terminal cheerful and happy as he exchanged pleasantries with his aides who came to receive him.

The aides waited for over 2 hours because the plane was earlier expected around 4 am but because of the 30 minutes delay, it arrived the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport Abuja exactly5.13am.

Al-makura was later escorted to the waiting car outside the terminal and driven home where he had a shower to freshen up before going straight to the NTA studios for a Good Morning Nigeria programme.

While doing this, he never knew that those who welcomed him at the airport had spent over two hours waiting, until after he returned home from the NTA studio’s around 10.am in the morning.

On knowing that, his mood changed and became pitiful; he was visibly worried that he kept them for more than necessary, and the cheerful look in his face disappeared and became gloomy worried and sympathetic for keeping them in the open cold waiting.  The next words that came from him were: “sorry, I never envisaged that the flight will be late, next time I will rather board a taxi than to keep you for hours.”

 

This is an aspect of him that has really  endeared him in the heart of men and placed him above his colleagues, and in doing so, he  prioritized  the welfare of his aides and the entire people of the state high and  above his personal interest.
