According to a statement, the CBN Governor, who was represented at the ceremony by his Special Adviser on Financial Markets, Mr. Emmanuel Ukeje appreciated ISEGG for the award which he said was in recognition of the sacrifice undertaken by the CBN in the last two years in efforts to move the nation’s economy forward.
The Governor stated that CBN as an Institution was committed to the ideals of excellence in service delivery.

In his comments, the father of the day, a former Deputy Governor of the CBN and Former Minster of National Planning, Dr. Shamsudeen Usman said he was enthused by the fact that the institute was being run by young people who believe that things can be done differently in the country and their programmes are targeting the youths. He however, expressed worry of the attitude of the youths and stressed the urgent need for a value re-orientation.

Delivering the keynote address, the Director-General of the Bureau of Public Service Reform, Dr. Joe Abah said for the country to develop, its public service must be one that is action driven, explains its actions to the public and allows for engagement and consultation with citizens.
