‘Though we have an annual awards ceremony which has been on for 8 years, we hold an induction ceremony once in four years. Our induction Ceremony usually comes with a theme and our inductee is usually selected after careful considerations of his impacts and contributions in years to a state or the entire nation’ says Rupert Ojenuwa, the Managing Custodian of the HoG Awards.’

This year, the HoG shall be honoring the Executive governor of Akwa-Ibom with a special Induction and Decoration Ceremony which is to be carried out by the Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi, the Ojaja 2 of Ile-Ife. Our choice of Udom Emmanuel is borne out of a need to honor performance. Our nation is going through a lot. Several states across the nation cannot boast of serious development. The beauty of democracy is in its dividends for without dividends, democracy loses its steam.’

After careful considerations of the democratic dividends delivered to the people of Akwa-Ibom State by Governor Emmanuel which cuts across all sectors of the state’s economy, ranging from health to education and to human capital development and his efforts at diversifying the economy by gross contribution to industry and agriculture, one would agree that the governor of Akwa-Ibom truly deserves this massive honor’ the statement concludes.

HoG Awards has in years honored very notable Nigerians, Alh. Aliko Dangote, Alh. Atiku Abubakar, Dr. Akinwunmi Adeshina, Sen. Musa Kwankwaso, Dr. Abdulfatai Ahmed, Gov. Ibrahim Dakwambo, Capt Idris Wada, Sen. Ben Bruce, Sen. Shehu Sani and a host of others.
