Nigerian Association of Christian Journalists (NACJ) has declared the Governor of Lagos State, Akinwumi Ambode and his Anambra State counterpart, Willie Obiano, as the Integrity Governors of the Year, for their Annual Integrity Lecture/Award holding later this month at Sheraton Hotel, Lagos.

Their nomination was predicated on their transparency and accountability in governance with a high sense of integrity.

Also, the famous journalist and ace broadcaster, Mr. Patrick Oke will be on hand to speak on the theme: Integrity is Everything.

A statement from the Secretary-General NACJ, Charles Okhai, said:

“The focus of the annual event is on Integrity because integrity is the direct opposite of corruption and if our leaders are mentally integrity conscious, cases of corruption in our society will be drastically reduced.”

Other eminent Nigerians to be equally honored include at the ceremony are Hon. Alex Egbon, Hon Nkem Abonta, Hon Chris Azubogu, Senator MAO Ohuabunwa, Engr Chinedu Orji Majority Leader Abia State House of Assembly, Hon Sunday Ibuot, and Hon Daniel Chimezie Okeke all in the parliamentary category.
