The executive director of projects on the board of the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC), Samuel Adjogbe, has bagged the Government College Ughelli (GCU) Class of Friends 2018 Man of the Year award.

Presenting the award, the managing director and chief executive officer of CY Incorporated, Mr. Cyril Ogude, said the gesture was in recognition of Adjogbe’s numerous contributions to the advancement of the college.

Shortly after receiving the honour in London, Adjogbe thanked the organisers, saying: “Every achievement of the NDDC is attributable to the mandate of President Muhammadu Buhari for the Niger Delta region.”

He commended the Buhari-led administration for its commitment to education in the region and the nation, noting: “For the first time ever, pupils are being fed on a daily basis through the government’s Social Investment Programme. NDDC on its part has just awarded scholarships for foreign studies to 200 students in the Niger Delta region.”

He added: “This is also without forgetting that the NDDC has embarked on massive renovation of public schools all over the region, while supplying desks and benches to them as well. Several educational institutions just like Government College Ughelli have also been impacted through the NDDC’s emergency repairs of failed sections of access roads.”
