What artistically defined, aesthetically designed public relations function!
In community service as a corporate social responsibility, the apolitical Tahir is the first and still the only critically, creatively conscious candidate in the state, working the talk about effective and efficient media practice and against quackery in public relations profession, by not only establishing the first of its kind media and language training institute in the northeast, if not the entire northern region but also allocating slots to the entire media organisations, public relations establishments and correspondents’ chapel, among others in Adamawa state, for free training of their members of staff, since inception about five years ago.

After the successful tenure at ABC Yola, AUN was established and Tahir was charged to lead the public relations functions of the university. The experiences, the forward looking thoughts and the selfless spirit for mentioning, jointly moved him to establish the Konngol SilverTongue: Media and Language Training Institute in the heart of Fombina dynasty, few kilometers from the Adamawa Emirate Council in Yola where he will be turbaned as the pioneer KaaKaaKey, interpreted to mean “the spokesman”, the newest appointment that confers on him, the full responsibility for the protocol, communication and public relations affairs at the Adamawa Emirate Council, with a view to creating the best impact for the Fombina Emirate.
By means of social responsibility reciprocity, the media managers, the NIPR Adamawa state chapter, the Konngol Alumi and those training, have jointly assured their support in ensuring adequate publicity and media coverage of the KaaKaaKey coronation and Qur’anic recitation graduation of the Tahir’s nine siblings: Muhammad Fodiyo, Muhammad Sambo, Muhammad Dikko, Muhammad Mojallo, Rukayyatu Ardo, Surayyatu Suuri, Habiba Barkaaji, Bilkisu Bajjo and Hauwa’u Kannge.
