Ayade's Aide Bags Officials Nigeria Magazine Award

Governor Ben Ayade Special Assistant on Agric Extension Services, Precious Jabe Besong has been honoured with an award of Excellence by the Officials Nigeria Magazine

Explaining the reason behind her selection, the Magazine said that it was in recognition of her patriotic zeal and commitment towards human capacity development in Cross River State and Nigeria at large. 

Reacting to the honour, the elated Jabe dedicated it to God for His benevolence even as she thanked the Officials Magazine for the recognition. 

She noted that the award will spur her to do more. 

"I sincerely thank Officials Magazine for this honour and recognition and wish to state here that this award is a call for more service. 

I also want to use this opportunity to thank my boss, Sen. Ben Ayade, Governor of Cross River State for providing me a platform to widen my reach on youth capacity development programmes", she said. 

She recalled that "During my undergraduate programme, I initiated a free training scheme to assist Orphans and young girls who could not afford monies to enrol for apprenticeship in Hair Dressing and Fashion Design. 

I kick started the free training programme and within a few days, I enrolled about 17 young people who we trained on Hair and Makeovers.

We continued with the free training religiously throughout my days in the Tertiary Institution.

After successful completion of my NYSC, I continued the training. Sometimes we get up to 20 apprentices including boys. 

It’s been actually a challenging thing to deal with young people but the satisfaction that comes with knowing that my little efforts puts food on someone’s table gives me unquantifiable joy and fulfillment". 

Officials Magazine had previously honoured the Speaker of the state House of Assembly, Rt Hon. Jones Eteng, Commissioner for Health, Dr. Betta Edu, Lady Ndidi Mezue, Commissioner for Social Welfare, Anambra state, Rt Hon. Uche Victor Okafor, Speaker Anambra state House of Assembly and many others.
