He said that, “Five other state commissioners in Nigeria made the top five nominations list in this category but Dr Asibong came top,”

He asserted the fact that it was the Nigerian team nominated Asibong as the most outstanding commissioner owing to her role in promoting the advancement of agriculture in Nigeria.

He praised the commissioner’s tenacity and allegiance in enticing federal and international donors into the state and commended her outstanding role in setting up an agricultural hub across Nigeria in synergy with the Food and Agricultural Organisation.
