They body said in a statement signed by their National President, Albert Ashipa that it was an obvious fact that Nwoko had left indelible footprints in the sand of grassroots governance and development for his efforts to get Paris Club refund for the 774 local governments which they said till today many were unaware of his singular role.
The president of the association further revealed in the statement that,
“In view of this, the members of our association have unanimously, with excitement decided to honour you for your past achievements.
“We are delighted to inform you that within the shortest time of our existence, the association has recorded modest achievements which include registration with Corporate Affairs Commission (CAC), inauguration of National Officers as well as establishment of strong footing nationwide with aggressive membership drive and existence of State Executives and provision of office accommodation.
“Therefore, we consider you as an important and strategic stakeholder in nation’s political renaissance, hence the decision to honour you as our PATRON,” the statement read.
