Dignified personality, Nsima Udo Ekere, the Managing Director (MD) and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC) and the All Progressives Congress (APC) Governorship Candidate for Akwa Ibom State for the 2019 election, sparkled like a cluster of shinning stars at the 2018 edition of New Telegraph Awards that took place at the expansive Balmoral Hall of Federal Palace Hotel in Victoria Island, Lagos in the early hours of today Saturday the 18th 2018 as The New Telegraph Newspaper honoured him with an award.
The event had some prominent Nigerians likes of the Chairman, BUA Group, Alhaji Abdulsamad Rabiu, Chief Dan Chukwudozie of Dozzy Group, Mr. Babatunde Fashola (SAN) and Rt. Hon. Rotimi Amaechi who all came in good numbers to the colourful and glamorous ceremony.
Interestingly, Ekere was recognised and honoured with Corporate Leadership Award for the second consecutive year. Despite exhibiting profound humility his sterling qualities can not be in any way caged that no matter how he tries to conceal his valour and feat, he is always espied like the golden fish.
One thing that has remained on the lips of many is that Esima remains impressively humble and immune to conceit, treading a rare path to acclaim thus, attracting honour in torrents, from home and abroad.
A reason why he is extremly popular among his people and the outside world.
Dr. Ekere, while thanking the Management and Staff of the New Telegraph, for finding him worthy of the honour, promises not to come short in his mission to impact positively in the lives of people both home and abroad to improve the quality of lives they live in any way possible to him.
To those who know him, one of the things that has worked in his favour is his exploit at the NDDC where he is serving as the substantive MD. The very humane figure keeps getting approval and commendation from his people because of his effort at that federal agency.
No one can doubt his competence on the job because he has been delivering. little wonder the leaders of the APC queued up behind the native of Ikot Oboroenyin, Edemaya Clan in Ikot Abasi Local Government Area of Akwa Ibom State, for his emergence as the flagbearer for the coming governorship election in the state.
Following Ekere’s emergence as governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), the nooks, crannies and political circuits of the state are ecstatic with joy. Little wonder the good and law-abiding people of Akwa Ibom are shouting from the rooftops that Ekere is the ‘Best Man For The Job”!
