The DBI Boss further noted that the CEO of “NEDC is a visionary leader whose efforts are already yielding multiple developmental results in the region.”
He expressed gratitude to the Adamawa State Government for hosting the participants and for enabling DBI while calling for driving partnership between DBI and all states in Nigeria.
The delegation from DBI included the President/CEO, Prof. Mohammed Ajiya; some members of Governing Board, Hashim Bakori , an Engineer; and Dr. Niran Oyekale.
