”At NACOSS, we are proud to have such a passionate, energetic and humble fellow around us to serve as a source of inspiration and motivation. The contribution of this great achiever can’t be over-emphasized and overlooked hence the reason for the presentation of this award.”he adds.
Onwugbolu adds that “we are presenting this award in recognition of the laudable and giant strides of Bayero Agabi in helping youths achieve their goals”.
Responding, Agabi appreciated the recognition accorded him by the students’ association. He says, “this award and recognition goes to the TMC team  and Daar family.”
According to him, ”I am only a pilot that directs and supervise the 90% work done by the team . This award is a pointer to the fact that we as a team still have a lot more work to do in order to improve and contribute more to youth development and empowerment in the country.”
Going down memory lane, Agabi said that, ”this dream starts long time ago when I  commence the enlightenment of students aimed at educating them to know the functionality of major parts of the computer. I began that with a program on AIT known as “Computerlink” during the pre-GSM era. Computerlink later metamorphosed to AIT Infotech Network as GSM, mobile phones and smartphones begins to reshape the cyber space.”
Known as Nigeria’s leading ICT broadcast journalist, Agabi remains the only African journalist to have won the prestigious UNECA/AISI (United Nations Economic Commission for Africa/Africa Information Society Media Awards) twice for best African ICT reporting, research and local content.
Agabi pioneered ICT on television with a programme known as AIT INFOTECH NETWORK in Nigeria now Africa’s leading and most popular ICT programme on television over a decade ago in Nigeria.
