One of the several reasons that brought to limelight the leadership qualities and suitability for all positions is that all the allegations labeled against him turned out to be false. The majority of the populace believes whatever they see rather than hear. That’s why they still love Shamsuddeen Bala Mohammed after he was found not guilty.
Shamsuddeen continues living an average life despite being the son of the current Governor of Bauchi State; he relates to everyone cordially and treats the haves and the have-nots as equal. Most of the Governor’s projects that target youths are initiated by the foresighted Shamsuddeen.
Regardless of being born with a silver spoon, Shamsuddeen’s attitudes are those of those from average homes. He prefers to struggle and earn his own money than to enjoy the wealth of his father; that is what made him unique from those from wealthy backgrounds.
He often posts his picture along with his dad’s with a caption which informs his followers about the stewardship of his father and what he does too.
Recently, during Shamsuddeen’s marriage anniversary, he did not let himself be carried away by organizing parties or extravagant gatherings; this was due to his good parental upbringing.
The honest Shamsuddeen is as silent as a graveyard. This can be seen in most of his posts on social media. His postings are majorly about hardships common Nigerians are going through or tangible projects executed by his father.
Shamsuddeen is incomparable to the sons and daughters of current leaders or influential people who always brag through postings on social media handles about their flamboyant lives.
Some elite children use their accounts to show off their homes, exotic cars, and expensive assets, whereas the agile Shamsuddeen uses his to remind leaders of campaign promises.
Many people are of the opinion that children of important personalities dump their longtime friends when their parents become rich or win big political positions. This is not the case with Shamsuddeen, because he is still with his friends and has helped the majority of them.
Shamsuddeen could be a good leader because he is content that he has never embezzled funds, he is honest and always speaks the truth both online and offline, and he has experience in business because he has been overseeing his mother’s pure-water selling business.
Shamsuddeen’s grandfather was a District Head from whom he learnt a lot in the aspects of life and leadership. His father also turned out to be a leader too.
Like Shamsuddeen, most of their bedeviling challenges would gradually come to an end due to their perseverance, doggedness, and endurance. The activities of Dan Galadiman Duguri are like a cold breeze and a soothing shadow to the masses under a scorching sun in the desert.
Shamsuddeen, on his part, is an independent entrepreneur, a tireless activist, a leaning wall to the hopeless and also an agent of ease amidst difficulties.
