The Association of Nze, Ozo and Chiefs (ANOC-USA), a body of Igbos residing in United States of America yesterday conferred Award of Excellence on Cross River State Governor, Senator Liyel Imoke.

Presenting the award in the Governor’s office in Calabar, President of the association, Chief Jones Okeke, who was represented by Chief F. Akpamgbo, said the award was in recognition of Imoke’s strides in areas of human and infrastructural development.

Lauding the governor for the legacies he will leave behind, Okeke maintained that it was in recognition of his sterling leadership style which has translated into landmark achievements recorded in the area of rural transformation, education and capacity building.

The President pointed out that even though they were in the Diaspora, they have been keeping in touch and have followed closely programs of governance at all levels back home. He said this necessitated the choice of Imoke for the award, having gone through his scorecard.

Responding, Governor Imoke, who was overwhelmed by the award said: “I know there are many people and many governors deserving of this award, but for you to identify me and the state for the award is humbling, and this would boost our morale in putting more effort in serving our people.”

Imoke maintained that “given what is available to us, our focus in governance is about our people, putting the people first in all our programs and projects that we embarked upon and I thank you for acknowledging these modest efforts.”

While urging them to be good ambassadors of the country by projecting its positive image always, the governor noted: “I would like you to take this goodwill message back to America, that all is well in Nigeria, all is well in Cross River Sate, there is peace, there is development contrary to the reports reaching you.

He added that “Nigeria is growing every day with improved governance, improved leadership, stronger democracy and the evolution of reforms that are taking place in governance is actually building a bigger, brighter society with the view to bequeathing a better future to our children.”

Also in company to present the award was Secretary of the association, Dr. Dan Egeonigwe.
