The Commissioner for Public Complaints Commission (PCC) representing the FCT, Dalhatu Ezekiel Musa, has called on the sons and daughters of the Gbagyi ethnic group across the country and in the diaspora to continue to remain united in order to sustain their culture and traditions.
Musa, who made the call in Abuja on Saturday at the maiden edition of “The Most Influential Gbagyi in Nigeria” award, also urged them to be worthy ambassadors of the ethnic group wherever they lived, noting that the Gbagyi were among the leading tribes that were well recognised through their culture and traditions.
Musa, who was a guest speaker at the event, commended the organisers, saying such an event would foster unity and peace.
Also speaking, the pioneer and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the Gbagyi Indigenous People Award Initiative, Dr Yusuf Israel Lissa, explained that the awards were aimed at reviving their spirit of hard work, honesty, perseverance and excellence.
