For Mrs. Oluwatoyin Egbesola of NIPOST headquarters, Abuja, her immense contributions and commitment to the growth of journalism qualified her for the union’s prestigious award. Other awardees included Dr. Abdullahi
Azeez, Executive Director NNPC; Mrs. Anike Ojuolape Azeez, Alhaji Ibraheem Olaniyan, and chairman, PCRC, Ogun State, Seun Abstinence.
“These people here tonight are being hon- oured because of their selfless services to humanity, empowerment of women and children in the society and interest in the development of pen profession,” Sokunbi noted.
Egbesola expressed delight at the award. She added she was just doing her duties diligently while in Ogun State three years ago, not knowing her activities were being noticed. She said the award would motivate her to be more committed to her duty as Head of Counters at NIPOST as well as her kind gestures to humanity.
She thanked Ogun NUJ for bringing people to the limelight and recognizing their services. She also urged the council to cover and report activities of NIPOST more, to let people know that the government-owned post delivery agency has been repositioned to offer quality services to the public.
