The Sarkin Yamma of Tikau emirate council in Yobe state, Alhaji Ibrahim B. Usman, has urged all youths to copy what they have seen now going on in the traditional institutions because next time we are expecting some of them to be where we are as title holders to continue with this noble tradition.

He spoke to a news reporter at his residence in Potiskum shortly after the presentation of his appointment letter as a Sarkin Yamma of Tikau.

He thanked all the people of the bonefied indigines of Nangere local government, especially the youth, because they are giving and fully cooperating on this title, our Sarkin Yamma. I will not forget it in my life because this is the title that was given to me by Alhaji Dr. Muhammadu Abubakar Ibn Grema, LLD, the emir of Tikau.

According to him, I will complain about all the other things that are on my side, and I will try my best to see that I do them to the best of my knowledge, inshallah.

“In the case of the position that I am now in as a Director of Finance and Supply, anything that comes to my position or to my level in terms of employment, in terms of any assistance that comes to my aids, I will try my best to see that I do it by the grace of Almighty Allah.” Sarkin Yamma said.

“It was something that every youth copied, and because of my dedication, transparency, and other things that we can always use to go and see the emir to greet him, whatever he calls, I will try to see that I will meet him.

Adding to that, if there is anything that is very essentially or very important that he wants me to deliver to other people, I will try my possible best to see that I will do it. What I want the youths to be is part of encouragement, especially our youth. Now you can see this type of title I have now, the Sarkin Yamma.

“If you want to be in this position, you try to be a good person who always respects yourself at any given time, and at least it is a time that any youth can cooperate in any part of the emirate, because this is our time.” he added.

ECOWAS Lightens Gambia Community with Solar Power

By: Michael Mike

A wave of excitement filled the air in Mamud Fana South, Gambia, as residents celebrated a new era of clean and reliable electricity with the commissioning of 77 Solar Home Systems (SHSs).

This life-changing project, implemented by UNIQUE ENERGY, was made possible with the financial support of the ECOWAS Commission through the ECOWAS Special Intervention Fund (ESIF), implemented by ECREEE.

For years, residents of Mamud Fana have struggled with limited access to electricity. This often meant evenings spent in darkness, limited opportunities for education and a struggle to power basic appliances. 

Now, the project lights up Mamud Fana South, bringing solar energy to over 1,000 residents. Each household has been equipped with a solar panel, battery storage, inverter, sockets, and lighting bulbs. This new energy source will allow them to power their homes, use appliances, and potentially develop small businesses.

The installations were commissioned on Saturday, June 15th, 2024, in the presence of Mr. Francis Sempore, ECREEE’s Executive Director, Mr. Emmanuel Correa, Representative of The Gambia’s Ministry of Petroleum and Energy and Mr. Njaga Ceesay, Business Development Manager at UNIQUE ENERGY.

The project demonstrates the positive impact that renewable energy solutions can have on rural communities across West Africa.
