ICSAN’s General Secretary, Akwa Ibom State chapter, Barr. Ime Asibong who anchored the event stated that the criteria for the selection of Ibom power for the excellence in corporate service award was due the support and patronage ICSAN has enjoyed from Ibom power over the years.
He said most of the staff of Ibom power are undergoing training with ICSAN and that several of Ibom power staff who are students of ICSAN have advanced to several stages of the qualifying exams. Barr. Asibong spoke further that in the last two years, two staff of Ibom power have qualified as Fellow and Associate of ICSAN respectively.
