Benue Journalists Forum Nigeria (BJFN), has applauded the Executive Secretary/CEO, Nigeria Shippers Council, NSC, Rt. Hon. Barr. Emmanuel Jime,for reopening the council office in Makurdi Benue State.
The National President of the forum, Chief Joseph Saater Undu gave the commendation at the event to honour the NSC boss with Outstanding Leadership Award.
He said: The Benue Journalists Forum, Nigeria (BJFN), a voluntary media advocacy group is here today at this historic occasion to honour and celebrate one of Benue’s illustrious sons, RT. Hon. (Barr.) Emmanuel Jime, who has continued to make the state proud at the national level
“As a body, we have observed that Benue Leaders, Technocrats, great Achievers and Heroes are under-celebrated and unrecognized in Nigeria. So, we took it upon ourselves as a challenge, among others to identify, recognize, honour and celebrate our outstanding achievers both in the public and private sectors while they are alive.
“We are honouring Jime today, not because he is very handsome and tall, not because he speaks Queen’s English better than many of us, but because he is an Accomplished and Outstanding Leader who has impacted many lives and the society at large positively. He has continued to be at the vanguard of development in Benue state anytime he is given an opportunity to serve.
“We are all here to witness yet another of his numerous milestones in changing the economic fortune of the state which is the reopening of the NSC office in Makurdi that has been abandoned for many years.
“We hope that the abandoned River Benue Dredging Project by the Federal Government will be given priority attention now that we have someone who cares about the economic prosperity of the state.
“We thank President Muhammadu Buhari so much for finding one of our illustrious sons, worthy of this appointment. This is as we plead that he appoints many more into his government before his tenure runs out next year.
