Adamawa’s Ammar Tukur Bags MTN’s 2021 North Best Sales Rep Award

Mr. Adamu Aminu Tukur popularly known as Ammar Tukur has bagged the MTN’s 2021 North Best Sales Representative Award.

Ammar is the son of late Dr. Aminu Tukur of Blessed memory; the first medical doctor in the defunct Gongola state, covering Adamawa and Taraba states, whose second, the states were blessed with came ten years later.

Dr. Tukur, whose achievements Ammar is metaphorically immortalising as demonstrated by the merit ward, indicative of hard work, had made a mark not only in Adamawa but in northeast Nigeria. He was the contemporary of Professor Emeritus Umaru Shehu, a Professor of Medicine who served as the 11th Vice Chancellor of the University of Nigeria, Nsukka; a Professor Emeritus, Community health, University of Maiduguri and former President of the Nigerian Academy of Science.

Dr. Tukur, it could be recalled, was the distinguished patriot who earlier proposed for the establishment of college of nursing and midwifery Yola, medical college and teaching hospital decades ago in the defunct Gongola state.

There was and is the college of nursing and midwifery in Yola, Adamawa state. Taraba state was and is also later to establish a college of nursing. Dr Tukur could however not survive the realisation of a dream in having a medical college and teaching hospital, established rather posthumously.

Ammar Tukur was with American University of Nigeria, AUN, Yola, before joining service with MTN Nigeria in July 2018 where he was onboarded at Kano state.

Ammar was later posted to Katsina state to cover Funtua Territory, comprising of 11 local government areas.

Ammar was transferred to Adamawa, his home state in the year 2020 as a sales representative covering Adamawa northern senatorial district (Mubi Territory).

His diligence, dedicated strategic planning zeal and diplomatic skills added up in making him an effective and efficient marketer to float flawlessly in the global marketing technology and to fly high beyond the sky; earning him the prestigious MTN award, perhaps as a Pioneer achiever in that regard from Adamawa state.

“Responding to the Periscope, the award winning Ammar said, “the award I’m being honoured with as the Best Sales Representation North for the year 2021 followed the critically strict review of my performance; I’m so lucky to be the top staff who achieved marvelously in the entire KPI’s in Northern Nigeria.

“I would confess that it it’s not easy as I had several sleepless nights, struggles and hurdles, beating traces of stress devoid of boredom, to be able to discover the proverbial light at the end of the tunnel.

“It’s also fascinating to discover how much of a collective undertaking success or achievement is; theorists would refer to it as collaboration, synergy and or teamwork. In this respect, I’ll love to recognize a few of my mentors, the likes of the Regional General Manager North Hajiya Amina Dambatta, Senior Managers; Abdulhamid Abba and Hamza Ibrahim, Sales and Trade Development Manager Yola Area, Mr. Godwin Musa and Sales and Trade Development Manager FCT Area; Mr. Nonso Ojogwu.

“These personalities actually played a vital role in guiding and supporting me towards achieving my targets.

“The Alumni and management staff of Konngol SilverTongue: Media and Language Training Institute, Yola are also worthy of mention.

“I’ve earlier benefited from the Periscope Global Publishers’ prestigious awards in 2016 and 2017, I’m also a nominee for the 2021 the Periscope award scheduled for April as was communicated to me. This is a justification and recognition that I’m indeed a worthy ambassador of my constituency and a pride to my parents, family and friends”.
