The Executive Vice Chairman of the Nigerian Communications Commission, NCC, Professor Umar Danbatta, has hailed the conferment of the Fellowship of the Nigerian Institute of Public Relations, on two management staff of the commission, as meritorious.
He also said it was a testimony to the commission’s promotion of professionalism and excellence in its scheme of management.
The NCC EVC’s assertion followed the recent investiture and induction of Reuben Muoka, Director of Public Affairs, and Dr. Omoniyi Ibietan, Head, Media Relations in the Public Affairs Department of the Commission, as Fellows of the Chartered Institute during its AGM and Conference at the International Conference Centre in Abuja.
Danbatta, in congratulating the duo, said the commission was proud to have produced the two individuals who had been considered worthy of elevation to the Fellowship cadre of the prestigious institution like the NIPR.
He said that their emergence resonated with two of the commission’s core values – Excellence and Professionalism – which the commission coincidentally shared with the NIPR.
The NCC boss expressed delight at the level of performance of the commission’s staff in their different areas of professional calling.
He commended the NIPR as a body for its commitment in the regulation of the practice of public relations in Nigeria for which it has found an ally in NCC.
“This can only rekindle the healthy collaboration and partnership existing between the NCC and NIPR, especially in the area of capacity-building and commitment to appropriate national social orientation,” Danbatta stated.
