The president said he “believes that Mustapha, who has inspired many Nigerians as well as national and international humanitarian organisations, earned the award because of his courage, hard work and extraordinary commitment to the welfare of Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) in the country, even at the risk of his life.”

He enjoined all Nigerians to emulate the conscientious dedication of the awardee, what had deployed his God-given talent, time and resources to make life better for those in dire need.
