As a consummate and highly experienced new breed political socialite with a deep commitment and unraveled passion for grass root development, a generous and promising Muhammed Musa Maikaya from Toto Local Government area of Nasarawa state has always stood out among his contemporaries and has never allowed the trappings and grandeur of office to stand between him and his avowed goals of lifting up the people of Nasarawa State from the shackles of poverty and underdevelopment.
Driven by an almost missionary zeal in ensuring the political, economic and social liberation of his people, a steadfast Muhammed Maikaya has always seen his primary vocation in the sociopolitical arena as being one of service, duty benevolence and charity towards his people and in this regards, he has delivered his good intentions by using his office to improve the lots of his people contrary to wide spread notion that the office of a civil servants are meant for self upkeep and that of the immediate families.
Possessed of a razor sharp intellect and a forthright and straight talking disposition that has no truck for undue grandstanding and semantic distinctions and double speak, Muhammed Maikaya has built an enviable reputation as a young and emerging leader, a straight forward personality who does not patronize vainglorious empty promises and one eminent figure that holds personal integrity and honour as standard that other young men of Nigeria would do well to emulate.
Many have adjudged Muhammed Maikaya as one social and emerging political maestro who can be taken literarily for his words. His words as the proverbial saying goes can be taken to the bank for a deposit. This is the entrance into the life and experience of Muhammed Maikaya as we take a snap into:

THE CHRONOLOGY OF THE MAN MUHAMMED MAIKAYA
It could better be imagined that there was little or no ceremony when this precious gift to humanity- Maikaya was born. No doubt the choice and the meaning of his name is synonymous to what he represents today in our contemporary world.
Alh Muhammed Musa Maikaya( ciroman Toto) was born on 2nd March 1972. With over 20 years of working experience, he holds a Bsc in Geology and Mining from the prestigious university of Jos, plateau state and thereafter, he proceeded to the University of Port Hacourt to obtain a PGD in (Geology) 2007.
A man, not known for careless talk or aimless chatter as common with young men of his status. When he speaks he resonates with clear authority, clarity, brevity and matchless lucidity. His statements on social and communal issues and his lifestyle are clad with iron cast vision and purpose and geared towards illuminating, dissecting and resolving issues with a measure of brutal frankness. These outstanding qualities earned him fame and subsequently the courage to discharge the most effective leadership at the NNPC and membership of the following institutions.
MEMBER – NIGERIAN MINING AND GEOSCIENCES SOCIETY (NMGS)
MEMBER – AMERICAN ASSOCIATION OF PETROLEUM GEOLOGIST
MEMBER – PROJECT MANAGEMENT INSTITUTE (PMI)

With this rich academic and social Dozier, Nasarawa State is proud to have a Honourable Son and she is left with no option than to call him to serve as Governor of the State come 2019.
As a visionary young man whose quest for advancement in life is immeasurable, Muhammed Maikaya has held sway as the President of the NNPC Cooperative Thrift and Credit society from 2010 to 2014 where he exuded the highest level of managerial sagacity to turn around the fortunes of the cooperative and its members. His matchless records of achievements during his stint speaks volumes of what he has to offer when given a larger responsibility. He is a member of several professional bodies and has had over 30 courses and workshops across the globe.
ALH MUHAMMED M. MAIKAYA- A TRUE HONOURABLE
Although the ancient injunction that honour be given to whom honour is due has evolved to a nascent political and societal axiom. It remains largely ethical because of its vagueness and ambiguity. In spite of its roots in acient history, the concept still bogs the soul and essence of modern society. Given the dehumanizing impulse of this concept; honour, it becomes almost impossible for one to formulate a precise meaning of the maxim.
However, it is pertinent to mention that honour is not a conferment of chieftaincy titles, honorary degrees on prominent citizens who are believed to have made it momentarily in business or politics. The commercialization of honorary awards and titles where the highest bidder grabs and pocket them has further demean the strength of the word- “Honorable”. As a matter of truth, honour is different from prestige conferred by wealth and material privileges bestowed by class.
Nevertheless, Alh Muhammed Maikaya as a man of honour is truth personified. According to Melford Okilo, honour is the practice of right actions. It is this school of thought that has shaped Maikaya’s disposition to issues. To him, honour means liberation of his people from fear to freedom, the ability to see the truth and tell it without fear or favour. He is humble in whatever he thinks, say or do whenever he communes with the ordinary people. This is why the people of Nasarawa State are calling on Muhammed Maikaya to lead them to the Promised Land socio political, economic and infrastructural development.
ALH MUHAMMED MAIKAYA IS A MAN OF GOOD CHARACTER
Character may be described as the moral strength of an individual. Character is presence- gravitas ie a solid sense of one who has feeling of self confidence in peace or pieces, in crisis or stress. It is the evidence or proof of some moral wholesomeness and sense of integrity displayed by man in dealing with other members of the larger society in trying to change his environment. Character means weight, vigor, a sense of responsibility and virtuous authority; it means being at ease with self, exercising the capacity to motivate , to direct, to visualize, conceptualize and move fellowship in the right direction to the desired destinations. Even if you disagree with a man’s character, you are bound to respect him and his blueprints. The opposite of character is weightlessness, one that is so elastic and malleable to be beaten into any opportunistic shape. When men of dishonor and lack of character ascend to powerful positions of responsibility, the whole society enters into an age of troubles.
Character includes the ability to dream dreams and the right spirit of abnegation to actualize them. It is the ability to inspire and show solidarity with fellowship, a combination of courage, caring and presence. “Character is fate”, says Novalis. If you sow a habit, you reap a character, sow a character, you reap destiny. A sum total of all the positive definitions of a true honourable man is what characterizes Alh Muhammed Musa Maikaya. Because of your humility and humane character, the people of Nasarawa beckons on you to bring to bear, your wealth of experience to transform its status.
ALH MUHAMMED MUSA MAIKAYA IS A MAN OF SERVICE WITH INTEGRITY
It is Infact difficult, if not impossible to have honour without integrity which ordinarily imputes some uncompromising adherence to and observance of moral and ethical principles laid down by community of beings to guide their normal life. Unlike politicians who are known for vain promises in the discharge of their electoral duties, Maikaya is a civil servant who has upheld precision in the discharge of his civil duties and service delivery with integrity. He is not given to so many promises but action oriented when he sets out to bridge the gaps hitherto neglected in human capital development and the socio economic empowerment of his people by the successive Governments. This is because his inner mind and sub consciousness has always instructed him to liberate his people from the strangle hold of mental and economic poverty. To Alh Muhammed Maikaya, honour means selfless service and simple life. Whereas the former implies a reasonable dose of capacity to sacrifice a bulk of personal convenience for the good of others, the later implies living by example within means. Alh Muhammed Maikaya a true man of honour, he is a man of integrity marked by the soundness of his character, a penchant for truth, honesty, humility, courage and consideration for others and respect for the rights of his fellow men. His integrity is tested by the level of the profound successes so far recorded in his reign and stints at the NNPC cooperative all these years, his effectiveness, recognition and relevance in the society and the extent to which he is honest in his pursuit of principled actions earned him the title of “Ciroman Toto” in the emirate and the constant call for him to govern Nasarawa State.
ALH MUHAMMED MUSA MAIKAYA- A POPULIST/ PHILANTHROPIST PER EXCELLENCE
This young and emerging political dynamo is now a house hold name with lots of street credibility across all strata of the society, a symbol of conciliatory political behavior and an unconditional pacifist in the affairs of Nasarawa state and amongst his contemporaries world over. He is evidently a self starter and a team player that is opened to feedbacks in his dealings with fellow human beings.
Extremely economical with the spoken words, especially in serious discussions on the human conditions, he is a good listener to problems of sorts at any given time. He is easier to get on with than men of his status. He enjoys working in a stimulating and challenging circumstances. Although very uncompromising on issues of honour and integrity, He is generally speaking responsible, flexible and responsive on mounumental issues of poverty underdevelopment. He is evidently a humanitarian, populist and philanthropist who never the less believed that the best way of fighting poverty is to liberate the minds of his people for economic empowerment. A rebel against the practice of false generosity, Muhammed Maikaya believe in the law of giving, not in expectation of reward or ovation from the beneficiaries of his largesse, but in the name of God and the law of balance. He may appear broke, not because he has not been paid his salaries and allowances, but because he exhaust both prudently or judiciously on a large no of dependants and programs. This again stood him out amongst his contemporaries. Join the call for Alh Muhammed Musa Maikaya to run for the office of the Governor 2019.
THE CLARION CALL
Judging by the quality of the personality of Alh. Muhammed M. Maikaya, one can attest that this grandeur is as a result of absolute commitment and resolved to maintain public trust by the unequalled performances in service delivery among his contemporaries, communal and spiritual dedication to his Almighty Creator.
To any discerning observer of the Nasarawa State Socio Political and Economic landscape from inception to date, the issue of executive competence and prudency is no mean matter when stocks are taken of the numerous misdeeds of some of the past leaders given the enormous availability of developmental potentials as well as its vantage deposit of natural resources and proximity to the FCT.
However, kin watchers of the personal disposition and socio political inclination of Muhammed Maikaya are comfortable and highly confident that he has the presence of mind, clarity of vision and sureness of purpose to carryout of the state to viable, and enviable economic prosperity.
I present to you readers, one man who can take Nasarawa State to the next level.
