Members of the Niger-Delta Youth Council (NDYC), led by its President, Comrade Godwin Ovuomarawu, has presented an award of excellence, tagged Symbol of hope and inspiration to the Nigerian Youth, to the Nigerian Tourism Development Corporation (NTDC) Director General, Mrs. Sally Mbanefo.

The NDYC made the presentation during their visit to Nigeria’s Tourism Village (NTDC Headquarters) in Abuja recently. Comrade Ovuomarawu, an engineer, while extolling Mrs Mbanefo, said her profile in the private sector is impressive and expressed the hope that the NTDC DG would replicate the feat at her current post.

While explaining that the NYDC aims at integrating all youths of the Niger Delta to contribute meaningfully to the development of the region; Ovuomarawu added: “We are here today to recognise you as a well-meaning Niger Delta personality, who has contributed an inestimable quota in the service of our great country”.

Comrade Ovuomarawu again: “We see you as a role-model and a source of inspiration to every Nigerian youth. (Your success is proof) that through diligence and hard-work, the sky shall only be our stepping point. While you committed yourself diligently to the service of humanity, even in the private sector, maybe you never realised that the eyes of the Niger Delta youths were watching keenly. But, this award should help relay to you how much your positive impacts are felt by the Niger Delta Youths across the Nation”.

In her response, while receiving the award on behalf of her team, Mrs Mbanefo promised not to let the youths down and assured them of continued support and collaborations in the drive towards consolidating on efforts aimed at youth empowerment.
While congratulating the NDYC on the initiative, the NTDC DG, who said she was truly impressed; reiterated her interest in women and youth empowerment. Concluding, Mrs. Mbanefo reminded that over many years, she had worked, and continues to work, with youths all over the country.
