The hardworking, humble but influential nature of Chief Executive Officer of National Food Buffer Stock Company (NAFCO) continues to attract the recognition of many, both home and abroad.
Young, affable Hanan Abdul-Wahab has recently been named among a group of 100 northerners considered very influential in many aspects of life.
A little over 3 years ago, Hanan was appointed by H.E President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo Addo to head the country’s only food security reserve outfit and suprising to many, the young post-harvest expert has improved the fortunes of the once almost-collapsed state company to a productive and profitable one.
Today, Buffer Stock as many refers to, has been strategically repositioned to play key role in the nation’s quest to attain food sufficiency while guaranteeing an enhanced livelihood for Ghanaian farmers.
Alhaji Abdul-Wahab is believed to be one of the most accessible government officials and is said to have used his influence to help thousands of people across geographical, tribal and religious divides.
A joint statement from Rudder Communications and Savannah NewsOne.Com, organizers of the 100 MIPs Project said Hanan has been nominated for the Politics and Governance category where he will be expected to compete among big names for the overall win based on highest votes from the public using the *365*366# on all networks.
Among the personalities in that category are Dr. Richard Kuuire, a former Director-General of Ghana Prisons Service and an Advisor on Prisons Reforms to the United Nations; COP Beatrice Vib-Sanzuri; Anti-Corruption campaigner Vitus Azeem; Deputy Energy Minister, Dr. Mohammed Adam; Builsa South MP, Dr. Clement Apaak and H.E Elizabeth Forgor, Ghana’s Ambassador to Namibia.
