The university don further stated that the Award did not come to him as a surprise, given the passion expressed by the governor for local content development and his patriotism in globally showcasing Abia made crafts, by personally being brand ambassador to such products.

He declared, ”It goes without any equivocation that OVI symbolises SME” and therefore charged the governor to leverage on the recognition in working towards the total transformation of the Small and Medium Scale Enterprises sector as a means of enhancing the Internally Generated Revenue (IGR) profile of the state.
