Delta State Commissioner for Information, Hon.

According to Ukah, the 25th Anniversary campaign which was anchored on the foundation laid by the SMART agenda of the Governor was funded strictly by the public sectors’ investments.

Appreciating ADVAN for the award, Ukah said “this is the first, and so far, the only award the governor is accepting because of the credibility of ADVAN and am not sure we would accept another soon until we can be properly judged”.

Earlier in his welcome address The President of ADVAN, David Okeme who acknowledged that the event was not a night of long speeches but about celebrating marketing excellence, highlighted the place of marketing in the growth of the nation’s economy and enjoined private and public institutions to take advantage of this opportunity to grow their businesses.
