  1. Dr. Shehu Sale has demonstrated all elements of good leadership and really made the FNPH Kware great. He is indeed a good representative of the federal government and coworkers, and a role model. More power to your elbow, as you continue to take this facility (FNPHK) to greater height in particular, and our dear nation, Nigeria, in general.
