WAANSA-Nigeria President Eulogizes Statistician General

By Paul Michael, Abuja

The President of the West African Action Network on Small Arms-Nigeria (WAANSA-Nigeria), Barr. Temitope Lamidi has described the Statistician-General of the National Bureau of Statistics (NBS), Dr. Simon Barsha Harry, as a great nation builder and a leader who is committed to the transformation of NBS.

Lamidi stated this in a birthday message made available to The Trumpet, adding that the five months leadership of the SG is an equivalent of a five-year tenure in the history of NBS.

While praying to God to keep and increase His grace on Dr. Harry, the WAANSA-Nigeria President also charged the SG to double his efforts in overhauling the NBS to make a more positive impact on the Nigerian people in terms of data analysis.

She said, “Happy birthday to an extraordinary Statistician-General of the federation. The whole nation is aware that your 5 months in office is equivalent to a 5-year tenure in the history of the National Bureau of Statistics (NBS).

“You have shown great courage as a nation builder, who is committed to the total transformation of NBS. Indeed, we are certain that you will do more as your days in office count to add more value to NBS and Nigeria.

“Your appointment has shown all concerned the meaning of ‘The positive power of one’. With the likes of you, No doubt, all hope is not lost for this great nation.
