Yakubu Saidu Karshi, his philanthropy is just a fact of life. he credited his community and the FCT at large, and upbringing for instilling the values of giving back to the community. It is something you just do. He believe that being a leader with the texture and the fabric of the community, people can have an impact and keep what is important to them. Their contributions allow them to expand their network of friends and colleagues and truly benefit from being in the Karshi and the FCT. Accepting this award is a difficult and uncomfortable experience Alh Yakubu Everyone who knows him understands that Yakubu go quietly about making our community better and seek no fanfare, but rather see the value of his philanthropic efforts through the positive effects seen across the FCT and the nation at large.
As summarized in one of his many nominations, his humble and unassuming presence belies a commitment to a variety of organizations and to the Valley.
