    It is well deserving though long overdue but again, always console by the scripture that God’s time is the best.

    Congratulations senior (that’s how I’ve been addressing you for over 30 years) for this recognition.
    It was almost like the saying that a prophet lacks no respect except in his home was playing out but am most console today that the grace of God upon your life and your willingness to respond to God’s demand for our world has distinguished you.
    Congratulations to you and your first lady. More wins as you pilot the gender balancing agenda. It may not be easy senior but I can tell you that it is worth it. Awara o

    It’s mind opening and gratifying to see a man stand tall for the affairs which would be conceived as women’s affairs.

    Dr Attai is an example of what it means to respect all human beings irrespective of gender.

    He is the kind of leader who follows his followers and leads as a peer by not just talking egalitarianism but clearly living the ideals of equality which he passionately talks about.

    With more men like him in today’s world ? I can only think of the words of John Rawls where he admonishes us as people to put ourselves in the position of the other when we think about justice and equality in policy making in other to allow for the creation of a fair and just society .

    A worthy nomination indeed. Keep doing the good work Sir.
