     The management of Verbatim News Network Limited, Publishers of Abuja based Verbatim news magazine and Verbatim Online Newspaper will tomorrow Thursday 20th October 2022 honour some corporate organisations and individuals with integrity in public service awards to mark its 10th year anniversary.

    Verbatim editors were formally staff of the defunct Newswatch magazine edited by Ray Egbu and Dan Agbese

    Top on the corporate award category are the well known and performance oriented Infrastructure Concesdion Regulatory Commission ( ICRC) under the able leadership of Barr Mike Ohiani and the Nigerian Electricity Management Services agency (NEMSA) led by youthful Engr Aliyu Tukur Tahir and charged with the responsibility of regulating electrical cables, materials and equipments and ensuring that Nigerians enjoy safe, stable and reliable power supply.

    The awards will be received on behalf of the organisations by their chief executives

    Incidentally, both CEOS were appointed this year by president Muhammadu Buhari but the sterling performance of the organisations under their brief tenure speak volumes justifying the popular statement that it is not how long in office but how well.

    Other organisations are the National Examinations Council (NECO), the Nigerian Meteorological Agency (NIMET) and the National Commission for Colleges of Education (NCCE to be represented by their Chief Executives
