Abia State Governor, Dr. Okezie Ikpeazu, has been nominated as the 2018 African Independent Television AIT Outstanding Governor of the Year award.

Speaking while presenting the letter of nomination to Governor Ikpeazu at the Abia State Governor’s Lodge in Abuja, the AIT team led by the Executive Director of DAAR Communications Plc in charge of Special Projects, Mr. John Iwarue, commended Governor Ikpeazu for what he described as an outstanding performance.

The nomination letter signed by the Group Managing Director of DAAR Communications, Mr. Tony Akiotu, reads: “This letter most respectfully submits a request for your Excellency’s kindest consideration and approval with regards to the forthcoming 3rd DAAR Awards 2018 for Outstanding Performance and Good Governance  wherein your excellency will be conferred with the Outstanding Performance and Good Governance in the Industrialization  and Infrastructural Development in Abia State, Federal Republic of Nigeria.

“The prestigious DAAR awards bring together an array of prominent Nigerians from all walks of life and the diplomatic community.”

The award presentation will take place in Abuja in a week’s time.

Recall that Governor Ikpeazu was last year also honoured for his exceptional leadership style as Vanguard’s Governor of the year 2017.

Stakeholders and political watchers have said that these awards are testimonies that hard work and diligence in service can be rewarding and therefore enjoined other political leaders to borrow a leaf.
