The Nigerian Institute of Public Relations, NIPR, has been applauded for its efforts in driving national unity and cohesion since its establishment in 1963.

Nigeria’s former Head of State, Gen. Yakubu Gowon, Retired, gave the applause while receiving a delegation of the Institute led by the President and Chairman of Council, Dr. Ike Neliaku who paid him a courtesy visit in Abuja.

According to the former Nigerian leader, the Institute is making efforts and rallying support to ensure that people believe in Nigeria, which shows that Nigeria is not just a geographical expression as some people have assumed.

General Gowon said he desires a nation where everyone will work together like the NIPR to keep Nigeria together.

Earlier, the Chairman of SNECOU Group, Senator Nicholas Ukachukwu, who had received the NIPR delegation in his Corporate Headquarters in Abuja, expressed satisfaction with the quality of the current leadership of the Institute since inauguration in August, 2023.

Senator Ukachukwu, a real estate developer and investor said he is willing to partner with the NIPR on a number of projects, including construction of a befitting office complex for the Institute.

The NIPR President on his part, said the visit to former Head of State was part of his administration’s initiatives to engage critical stakeholders on issues of nation-building; while the engagement with SNECOU Group was in line with the Institute’s efforts towards fostering mutually beneficial relationship with the private sector.

A statement signed by the Director, Public Relations of the institute, Stanley Ogadigo, quoted the president as stating that the Institute’s forthcoming Diamond Anniversary scheduled to hold on 27th June, 2024, at Transcorp Hilton, Abuja will be a platform to celebrate outstanding Nigerians, who have contributed immensely to the success story of the country.
