He pointed out that the SSG in his previous positions as Commissioner for Information and later Commissioner for Basic Education deployed the skill of ingenuity to achieve unprecedented milestones, describing him as embodiment of professionalism and excellence.

The NIPR boss assured that the Institute would offer professional support to Delta State Government towards achieving its goals.
