The monthly Inspiring Leadership Reflection and Interaction Series of the Center for Information Technology and Development (CITAD) this month featured prominent broadcast journalist and consultant Umar Sa’id Tudun Wada. UST as he is popularly known is an icon in the broadcast industry with 35 years experience in both local and international media. He has done remarkably well in his career and that made him stand tall among peers. UST has worked with many public, private and international media organizations which include NTA, ARTV, DW Radio, Voice of America (VOA), lastly as General Manager Freedom Radio Kano for 13 years. The nearly four hours interaction has given the participants chance to listen and ask questions on the achievements and challenges of the broadcaster. His vast experience, triumphs, challenges have no doubt taught and inspired the staff and interns of CITAD. Earlier in his opening remark, Executive Director of the center, Dr. YZ Ya’u noted that the purpose of the monthly session is to further develop the capacity of the staff and interns of the organization by inviting people who have exciting life and leadership experience to share so as the participants learn from them. It could be recalled that last month, historian and educationist Professor Haruna Wakili of BUK was also featured for the same lecture series. This is an important initiative and avenue for practical learning and it will as well improve our capacity and productivity in the organization, said a staff.
