Speaking at the event, NIMN’s President, Tony Agenmonmen said the newly inducted members are individuals that have met the high standard set by the institute and distinguished themselves in marketing and its related areas.
While congratulating new fellows, he enjoined them to continue to contribute to the growth of marketing as a profession in the country.
Agenmonmen, however used the event to call on Vice President, Professor Yemi Osinbajo and the Minister of Trade and Investments, Dr Okechukwu Enelamah to call the National Lottery Regulatory Commission (NLRC) to order over the commission’s constant harassment, saying that the activities of the agency were capable of reversing some of the achievements the government has recorded in the ease of doing business in Nigeria.
