The Edo State Governor, Mr. Godwin Obaseki, has received recognition from the Rotary Club and the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Nigeria (ICAN) for his impressive performance in office.
Presenting the awards to Governor Obaseki after the weekly Executive Council (EXCO) meeting held in Government House, the Permanent Secretary, Finance, Budget, Economic Planning and Development, Bernard Aigbe, said the awards were bestowed on the governor on account of his outstanding performance in governance.
Aigbe said the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Nigeria (ICAN) recognised the governor for his performance in governance as he has been very accountable, transparent, and resourceful in the management of human and State resources.
“ICAN has given you this award for your performance in governance, especially in the area of accountability, transparency and resourcefulness in the management of human and State resources. Your resourcefulness has singled you out amongst the crowd which necessitated this award,” he said.
The awards are Rotary Award of Excellence in recognition of the outstanding performance of Governor Godwin Obaseki in surveillance within the PEI in Nigeria, and the ICAN award to the State Government for ranking 3rd amongst the 36 States and the Federal Government in 2020 Accountability Index (ICAN-AI).
