The Association of Public Office Holders of Nigeria (POHAN) has revealed that it plans to reward people who have served the nation with passion and who have excelled in their various fields and personal endeavors.

Dr Adeola Eseyin, National President of POHAN, revealed this in an interview with the Nigeria News Agency on Friday in Abuja.

reports that POHAN is a group created to encourage good governance and bridge the gap in public service efficiency.

POHAN also has a sister organization called the National Public Service Awards and Summit (NAPSAS) which is responsible for organizing merit awards, educational conferences and a mentoring summit.

Eseyin said the initiative was intended to encourage and promote excellence at a time when Nigeria was witnessing a dearth of public service and leadership in all spheres.

He added that it was a way to boost morale when the best were afraid to take responsibility because of the various crises the nation was going through with insecurity.

He nominated former President Olusegun Obasanjo, Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, Senator Dino Melaye, Mo Abudu, Ibukun Awosika, Clyde Rivers, Professor Patrick Lumumba, among others for ambassador awards .

He also named other award categories as Governor of the Year, Senator of the Year, Most Influential Personality, TV Channels of the Year, Bank of the Year, among others.

“Born to create and achieve effective, transparent and useful mentorship, POHAN was also created to encourage good leadership, good governance and the pursuit of good works handed down by successive governments,” he said.

Eseyin said there was no better time than now for leaders, stakeholders and private sector drivers to come together with a common voice.

It, he said, should be devoid of ethnicity, religion and greed to raise or exploit the nation’s energetic youth.

He said young people should be trained to imbibe good leadership habits in others to introduce them to the great task of building the future of the nation.

Eseyin, who is also the chief executive of NAPSAS, believed the association of former and current public office holders was the right person to get the nation back on track.

He added that this could be done through the collaboration of prominent stakeholders, business organizations, industry captains and former political office holders.

“This should not only be by organizing conferences, seminars, symposia, walks, but also by organizing awards of excellence to encourage those who have excelled in their various areas of leadership activity without unnecessary problems or quarrels. “, did he declare.

Eseyin said NAPSAS has done everything in its power to ensure an open and transparent voting system to determine the winners of this merit award.

“It will be for deserving and exemplary Nigerian leaders, industrialists and those who have made their mark in one area or another.

“It will be done in others to encourage those who have served the nation with passion, and those who have excelled, in their areas of personal endeavor.

“It will also encourage aspiring young people, entrepreneurs and future leaders and political office holders to learn from those who have been there or are still there,” he said.

The first edition of the award is scheduled for October 28, with the hosting of eminent personalities for conferences, panel discussions and panel discussions and presentations of the Service Merit Award. .
