The creative club of Gombe State university, has honoured Adamu Usman Garko, the Gombe award winning teen writer, author of ‘when day breaks’ with a recognition award.

Garko was named as the awardee at an inauguration and handing over ceremony of the club executives held on Friday, June 25, 2021 at the university’s science complex.

This is not the first time Garko is winning an award from the club. It will be recalled that in 2019, Garko, who was a secondary school student at that time won the first prize in the club inaugural essay writing competition beating all of the university’s students.

According to the club, Garko was honoured “in recognition of his tireless, innovative and continuous support to the club”.

And some of these amazing works you have been seeing online, is as a result of direct support from our dear Garko.” Cephas said.

Garko, who spoke to our correspondent in Gombe this weekend, said “I am pleased, honoured and humbled to receive an award from Creative Club Gombe State University. To say that I am delighted to receive this important award from one of the biggest communities of intelligents in Gombe State is an understatement.” He said.
