Yusuf Mamman an Indigene of Katcha Local Government, Niger State was born on the 5th of July, 1995 in Maitumbi Minna, Niger State into the Family of Late Alhaji Jibril Mamman, a Staff of the then Nigerian Telecommunication Limited (NITEL).
He attended Excell International School, Maitumbi Minna from (1998-2006) for his Nursery and Primary education. Studied at Hill-top Model School, Minna from (2006-2012 ) for his Secondary education. He proceeded to the School of Basic and Remidial Studies (SBRS), Funtua in the year (2012) where he came out with flying colors.
Yusuf Mamman was admitted into Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria to study Veterinary Medicine in 2013. After six years in Veterinary school (2013-2019), he was opportune to graduate with a CGPA of 4.81.
On the 3rd of March 2020, he was inducted into the Veterinary Profession and was given the NVMA and Prof. L. B. Tekdek’s award for the overall best graduating student of Veterinary Medicine Ahmadu Bello University Zaria 2019.
Yusuf Maman has from day one exhibited intellectual genius worthy of emulation and recognition by Niger State Government, Philanthropist and Cooperate Organizations. Celebrating academic excellence will go a long way in gearing the younger generation towards attaining academic excellence.
History has thought us how First Class product like Yusuf Mamman was celebrated with Laurel and juicy Job opportunities to the admiration of all. These efforts in the past have made Nigeria produce the best hands at the top managerial and intellectual endeavors of life.
It has made things better than our generation of who you know and political connections. Yusuf is not just an ordinary First Class product but a 4.81 CGPA in Veterinary Medicine, a profession where the State and the Nation are lacking in terms of the ratio of qualified Doctors per person.
With the introduction of the School of Medicine in the State-owned Ibrahim Badamasi Babangida University, the likes of Yusuf should be involved to help grow the Veterinary Department. The Global demand for Animal Rearing through modern ranching, poultry, Fishery, etc requires the best hands like Yusuf in our Veterinary Hospitals and Ministry of Agriculture.
The likes of Yusuf are scattered around the State and most cases are employed by neighboring States. They help improve the Health sector of these States instead of being utilized in their Home State. If we keep allowing our professionals out of the State, then the long term resulting negative effects will be immeasurable.
