“NIPR’s decision to award Mohammed and the Bauchi Emir as Fellows of the Institute, the highest rank possible, was for their efforts in sustaining peace in the state and their communication prowess.

“The fellowship honour does not overshadow the abilities and accomplishments of the governor and the Emir, but fits them just right.

“They spent immeasurable efforts in leveraging the elements and strategies of communications and public relations to improve governmental and corporate decision-making in sustaining the peace the state is enjoying presently,” he said.

He said arrangements had been concluded to host no fewer than 1, 000 members of the institute, for the first time in the North East geo-political zone and the state.

According to him, all critical security stakeholders had assured the institute of their support for a peaceful conference and AGM in the state.
