The Executive Director of Projects, Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC), Cairo Ojougboh, has won the ‘Distinguished Personality’ award, a New Face of NDDC, from the Jet Age Nation Builder Organisation in Rwanda.
The Continental Coordinator, Young Omatseye, who presented the award on behalf of the Face of Jet Age Nation Builder and Brand Ambassadors India-Rwanda, Nayasa Sanghavi, said from the three nominations they got from Nigeria, Ojougboh was the most qualified.
Omatseye, who described the Jet Age Nation Builder as an institution which takes synergy with like minds across Africa and globally, said the organisation is in partnership with the United Nations Development Programmes (UNDP); African Union (AU), Commonwealth, captains of industries and world youth organisations.
He said: “… having x-rayed the activities of Dr. Cairo Ojougboh in the Niger Delta Development Commission, found out he is very transparent in his work as the Acting Executive Director of projects…”
Ojougboh, who thanked the organisation for the award, said: “I am delighted for this recognition because this award is coming from a country like Rwanda with very impressive record of anti-corruption efforts, a country that has zero tolerance for corruption. As a soldier of truth and National Patron of Soldiers for Truth International Advocacy, I want say that that no man is hated as much as one who tells the truth; but once you imbibe the spirit of the truth, you will be free. Therefore I am glad that people realise we are telling the truth.
