THE Chairman, Governing Council of the Nigerian Institute of Transport Technology (NITT), Zaria, Olorogun John-Ejovwoke Onojeharho, has been conferred with the Fellowship of the African Centre for Supply Chain (ACSC).
Dr Obinna Nwachukwu, NITT’s Media and Communication Consultant, said this in a statement issued on Monday in Zaria.
The statement said the ACSC Governing Council Chairman, Prof. Abdulganiyu Sumaila, said the award was in recognition of the NITT chairman’s industry position and valuable contributions to the growth and development of the transport, logistics and supply chain management in Nigeria.
“Unarguably, in the history of the NITT, the current leadership led by John Onojeharho has done more to reposition the Institute than any previous administration in its over 30 years of existence.
“Today, the NITT has undergone massive transformation both in physical structures, academic programmes and staff welfare thereby making the institute the toast of the transport industry as well as the best sought after by Nigerians and foreigners alike,” Sumaila said.
The statement also quoted the NITT Board Chairman expressing joy that his modest contributions to the transport and logistics industry had been recognised and thanked the ACSC governing council for the honour done to him.
“Supply chain management is an emerging area in our economy and to be a pioneer fellow of a centre that is working assiduously to push that frontier of our economy is a great honour.
“ I thank ACSC Governing Council for recognising my modest contributions in that sector of our economy and definitely this fellowship will ginger me to do even more for our country and for humanity,” Onojeharho said.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that African Centre for Supply Chain (ACSC) is an umbrella networking body of logistics and supply chain professionals across Africa.
The centre was established with the prime objective to provide a platform for in-depth research, education and training for the Logistics and Supply Chain industry. (NAN)
