Anambra Commissioner for Works, Mr Marcel Ifejiofor has clinched Certificate of Integrity Stewardship, a Service Ambassador’s Award.
The award was presented to him by Centre for Peace and Self Value Reorientation, Abuja in his office at Awka.
Presenting the award, the Executive Director, Centre, Mr Abubakar Abraham described the commissioner as a quintessential leader.
Abubakar said they came up with the award after an independent assessment was conducted, based on these critical sectors - ethical leadership and service compliance, policy performance and rule of law.
Other criteria include, peace building, youth/women empowerment and most especially, commitment to Anambra State Transformation Agency through road infrastructure.
While accepting the award, the commissioner commended the centre for coming out with an independent assessment, stressing that he was overwhelmed at being nominated for the award.

He thanked Gov. Willie Obiano for his support toward these achievements of the ministry.
