On Thursday, 07/02/2019, the Federal Government of Nigeria instituted the Efficient, Productive, Incorruptible and Citizen-centered (EPIC) award.
The maiden edition which held at the Banquet Hall of the State House, Aso Rock Villa, Abuja had President Muhammadu Buhari, GCFR (represented by the Honorable Minister of Labour and Productivity, Dr Chris Ngige), the Chief Host, Mrs Winifred Oyo-Ita (Head of Service of the Federation), the Chairman, Civil Service Commission, former heads of service of the federation, top civil servants, etc. in attendance.
Among the inaugural recipients of the award was our own indefatigable Dr Damian Echendu, Immediate Past President (IPP) of the NOA, who received the EPIC Merit Award, for his stellar service to the country.
This message conveys grand felicitations from the NEC and entire members of the NOA to our admirable IPP on this meritorious recognition by the Government and People of Nigeria.
Sir, may your light and impact continue to shine even brighter to the world, and attract even greater recognition to you and us all.
Dr Raymond Aguboshim C.
National Public Relations Officer, NOA.
