All in set for the South–South Leadership Advancement Awards organize by the Peace Ambassador Agency. The award, which is to honour deserving sons and daughters of the South South, has promised to be fair in its choice of recipients.
According to the organizer, Kingsley Amafibe, he said after looking critically at the various achievements of these sons and daughters of South-South, there is no better way to appreciate them than giving them a boost.
“Aka Ibom State is peaceful and very strategic in the South-South; its peace or otherwise can affect other states in the region in one way or the others, that is why we chose it as host state.
“Its about humanitarian initiatives that have impacted the society, especially in the South-South.’’
He added that militancy; kidnapping and other vices threatening peace in the region would be discussed at the summit.
“Peace in the Niger-Delta is very crucial to our economic survival as a nation, especially in this recession we are facing.
“We must do everything collectively to sustain peace in the region, and that is the essence of choosing the theme for the summit,’’ he said.
