See the Commissioner Honoured with an International Agricultural Award
The African Agricultural Organisation (AAO), the largest network of agricultural professionals, researchers and agropreneurs across Africa, has conferred the most “outstanding commissioner promoting agriculture in Nigeria” award on Dr Inyang Asibong, the Cross River Commissioner for International Development Cooperation.
Mr Gabriel Ebaji, the Sole Administration of the Organisation in Nigeria, on Saturday in Calabar that the organisation honoured distinguished African leaders and leaders that have been honoured were those who made intentional, positive and astute contributions in the global drive to meet the Sustainable Development Goals.
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.
