The Divine Institute of Chaplaincy Corps International (DICCI), last week, honoured some eminent Nigerians for their roles in improving humanity through selfless service and uncommon generosity.

At the well attended 2019 Awards Gala Night, the Corps honoured President, White House Group, Dr. Augustine Eruotor and nine others for their immense contributions, through various novel charitable causes to better their immediate society, as well as the entire human community.

In his welcome remarks, DICCI Chaplain General, Dr. Chris Nwanne revealed that Corps was established in Nigeria in 2005 to train persons with the knowledge, skills and attitude that would make positive impactful difference in the military, para-military and other establishments.

He explained that those trained by the DCCI help in times of national and natural disaster and crime prevention. He said they are attached to institutions such as prisons, hospitals, military units, schools, police departments or private chapel facility, where they provide counselling for effective support for the system.

He said the entry levels are Regular, and Special Commissioning, International Special Marshals, National Chaplain Officers, DICCI Brigade and DICCI Layman Chaplaincy with specifics, as the level entails.

The awardees, he said, deserved the recognition and honour for convincingly and consistently standing tall above others considered in the various areas.

Aside Dr. Eruotor, who was awarded the DICCI 2019 Social Services and Leadership Development award, other awardees were Dr. Samuel Olatunji Idowu; Pastor (Mrs.) Eno Essien; Mrs. Martha Eseoghene Najomo; Dr. (Mrs.) Eke Apollonia; Dr. Chidi Anyaegbu; Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Dr. Uba Onwudiwe and Mr. Demian Ndubuisi Chukwu.

Speaking on behalf of the awardees, Dr. Augustine Eruotor stressed the need for individuals and organisations, which have the capacity to make a meaningful contribution towards the advancement and betterment of the human society, to not hesitate to do so, as it is more to their advantage than that of the receiver.

The National Director, Extension and Growth, DICC, Brig. Gen. Rev. Franca Obinyan, said the body would not relent in its effort to honour individuals and organisations that make a genuine difference in the advancement of the global human community.
