The Spokesperson of the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC), Mrs Azuka Ogugua, and 78 other Nigerians were have been inducted as Fellows of the Nigerian Institute of Public Relations (NIPR), the body that regulates the practice of public relations in Nigeria.

A statement by ICPC on Thursday said the spokesperson and others were inducted on Wednesday 24th August 2022.

Mrs Ogugua, a Deputy Director in the Public Enlightenment & Education Department of the Commission, was decorated as a Fellow by the President & Chairman of the Governing Council of the Institute, Mallam Mukhtar Zubairu Sirajo at the 2022 AGM, which was held at the International Conference Center, Abuja.

Speaking at the AGM after the Investiture ceremony, the NIPR President noted that new Fellows of the Institute were selected after a rigorous screening exercise of candidates aspiring for the Fellowship of the Institute by the Fellowship Advisory Committee.

In addition to the regular upgrade, the Institute had opened a special membership upgrade window “in response to the yearnings of members, to facilitate the processing of the upgrade of NIPR members who had lost precedence or proper categorization due to circumstances beyond their control,” Sirajo said.
