“This is after a well sampled opinion by our Speaker during an interface/oversight function with most Journalists in National Assembly and its environs which majority of the sampled opinion recognized you for the NHODP award of excellence recognition as a way of motivating you for more effective/humanitarian services to Nigerians”, Egila said.

The group specifically noted the many media advocacies of Prince Itodo which have led to emancipations of many downtrodden and people in need, with special mentioning of the 72-year old Journalist, Pa. Oga Tom Uhia, who is currently under secret detention in Abuja for 27 days without trial.

While receiving the award, Prince Itodo expressed great surprise that, a group of such standing and reputation would honour a Journalist like him.

“We were told that Journalism is a thankless job, just as the rewards of Teachers are in heaven. These awards should have been given to some money bags and politicians, but you are here honouring me, an ordinary Journalist. This goes to show the integrity of your organization”.

“This award encouraged me to increase the tempo to ensure more persons are reached in my activities”, Itodo said.

Mr. Itodo dedicated the award Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ), all freedom fighters and human rights activists and the struggle for the release of Pa. Uhia, who is been incarcerated by the Nigerian Minister of State for Power, Chief. Jeddy Agba.
