“As a member of the State Executive Council, I can testify of your sound professionalism and work ethics in handling matters of state.

“Your mastery of governance and coordination of the various ministries, departments, parastatals and agencies of governance is worthy of commendation.

“As Commissioner for Basic and Secondary Education from 2015-2019, you were exceptionally committed to the course of leading the ministry to achieve set goals which includes but not limited to the massive renovation and rehabilitation of schools and the revamping of grassroot sports through the Zenith Bank Delta Principal’s and Headmaster’s Cup,” Aniagwu said.
