Presenting the award, Ibrahim stated that the group deemed it fit in presenting the award to the NOUN DVC for his exemplary lifestyle in the discharge of his Gods given ability towards humanity.

In his response, Prof. Butswat appreciated the group for the recognition, saying that I never knew them before now. I felt encouraged and inspired to keep doing what I have been doing that drew their attention and even do more.

I urge all staff to keep doing their best because people are watching us doing good, whether we like it or not and that will determine the type of recognition we got.’’
