FOR MONTHLY INSPIRATION SERIES ON 16TH JUNE 2016
On 16th June 2016, CITAD organised her 6th monthly Inspiring Leadership Reflection Interactive Series and the Guest of the day was Hajiya Sa’a Ibrahim of Abubakar Rimi Television. Hajiya Sa’a is the first female Managing Director of Abubakar Rimi Television formerly known as City Television (CTV). Here are highlight from the interactive discussion Hajiya Sa’a had with the staff and friends of CITAD present on that day.
Before Hajiya Saa’s inspirational speech, there was a brief introduction by the Executive Director of CITAD Dr. Y.Z. Ya’u who stressed the relevance of the monthly inspirational series. He said at CITAD we look at people who have made sacrifices and made impact in people’s lives and Hajiya Sa’a Ibrahim was one of those people.
Hajiya Saa talked about how she grew up in an extended family setting where everyone had a role to play and everyone played their part diligently and this contributed positively to her outlook in life. She also talked of a popular saying by her mother “There are many ways to Sabongari market” which implies, there is more than one way to achieve a goal. Hajiya lamented on how youth of present days wait to be spoon fed which is a contrast to how she was brought up. This helped her navigate her way in life without favour to get to where she is today. Many youth wait for the government to help them out when they have the capacity to help themselves.
Hajiya Sa’a Ibrahim capped the talk with some words of reflection: – You have to learn to be responsible, – hard work pays, – Stand on the side of truth no matter the circumstances, – identify a role model, – Never allow any to suffer between the family and the career.
The session was closed after a question and answer session and some CITAD publications were handed to Hajiya Sa’a Ibrahim.
