The Minister of Labour and Employment, Sen. Chris Ngige has extolled the former Secretary General of the Commonwealth, Chief Emeka Anyaoku, as a colossus whose profound attainments and illuminating career in global embassage, elected an iconic change maker.
A statement by his Media Office, yesterday in Abuja, described Chief Anyaoku as an institution, whom generations of Nigerians will look back on in history as an enigma in exemplary citizenship and diplomacy.
Ngige said, “You are a great son of Nigeria who is eminent on all counts and whose name is a foreword in the book for excellent citizenship. You are a change maker whose example provides a veritable counterpoise to the socio-economic and political uncertainties that conspire against Nigeria today.”
