Stating that The Sun has remained neutral and professional in its reportage, Ngige said for the newspaper to capture his days as a civil servant, which is part of the things that earned him the Public Service Icon award, showed that The Sun is thorough in its selection process.

He recalled his days in the Federal Ministry of Health, saying that many Nigerians do not know that he was a civil servant before becoming an elected governor.

On his Public Service Icon award, Ngige said: “This award is well received and appreciated. I am parti-cularly happy that you referred to my time in the civil service. Not many people are aware that I was once a civil servant. I served and retired in 1998, before I went into active politics.”

Earlier, Mr. Ukeh explained what informed the choice of Ngige for the award.

He said: “We note that in public service, you have been a beacon of hope and a leading light. Prior to your appointment as Minister of Labour and Employment, you had, at various times, served as a medical  doctor in the Ministry, a senator representing Anambra Central senatorial district (2011-2015) and Anambra State governor (2003-2006).

“As governor, you transformed Awka to a befitting capital city. You dualised Nnamdi Azikiwe Road and installed streetlights. The Agu Awka power station was given a boost with 60KVA sub-injector station to complement the Nibo power station under your government. You created the Ngozika Housing Estate and introduced reforms in the civil service. You engineered reforms at the Anambra State civil service

“As senator, you became one of the most visible federal lawmaker of the 7th Senate, supporting, most of the time  motions and bills in favour of the Nigerian masses. A notable instance was when an anti-labour bill was smuggled into the Senate by the executive, as a Private Member Bill, and was almost scaling through to the third and final reading, but you challenged it and inspired other senators to add their voices.

“Your tenure as the Minister of Labour and Employment has followed in your trailblazing tradition. To mention a few, you were instrumental to the approval of the N30, 000 Minimum Wage enjoyed by Nigerian workers.

“You have always stepped in to handle employment and labour issues to the benefit of Nigerians, ensuring that even during COVID-19 when most Nigerian workers operated from home for many months, they received their full salaries.

The Assistant Director, Army Public Relations, 2 Brigade Nigerian Army, Capt. Samuel Akari, disclosed this to newsmen after the raid in Obon Ebot in Etim Ekpo Local Government Area of the state.

Akari said the troops arrested three of the accomplices and rescued two kidnapped victims during the operation.

He disclosed that items recovered from the raid included one Sub Machine Gun and magazine, 67 rounds of 9MM ammunition, two motorcycles, 16 mobile phones, one AK 47 rifle magazine with 30 rounds of 7.62MM Special ammunition and nine machetes.

“The first phase of the operations was conducted on May 12, during the operations, troops raided the criminals hideout, but on sighting the troops, the criminals abandoned their hideout and fled.

“The gallant troops rescued the kidnapped victims and arrested two collaborators of the criminal kingpin while the shrine, hideout and assorted charms were set ablaze by the troops.
