Knowing that he wanted to be a diplomat early on allowed Ambassador Hassan Ardo Tukur to focus his efforts in the right direction. Add to the mix his ability to view problems from a positive angle and an open-minded mentality, and it’s obvious how he climbed up to play a significant role in Nigerian government. “So long as you maintain the urge to be well-educated, the opportunities in Nigeria are infinite. The country is growing fast and there is a lot of work to be done in every sector, but if you want to find your niche you have to keep a positive mindset.”
