How Hassan Idris feels about his achievement.
The proud Abusite told Campusinfo.com.ng, “I’m glad and my thanks to almighty Allah, my parents, course mates, friends and lecturers for standing there for me. I have dedicated my self to writing for years ever since I stepped into the department of Sociology and Anthropology, A.B.U zaria.
“I’m proudly an Abusite! I do all my writings, research my self without anyone assisting me. I wish the school management could do something about that.
“They are many people who want to achieve in the Department and the School at large but they have no helping hands. I never expected to emerge a winner in this essay competition, but alhamdulillah, hard work, dedication, and prayers payes.”
