Nigeria’s current economic challenges are surmountable with patriotic commitment of capable men and women handling various responsibilities, the Deputy Senate President, Senator Ovie Omo-Agege has said.
In a birthday felicitation message to the Executive Director for Business Development at the Nigerian Export-Import Bank (NEXIM), Honourable Stella Okotete, Senator Omo-Agege applauded her role in boosting NEXIM’s relevance to the Federal Government’s economic priorities.
“NEXIM was established in 1991 as an export credit agency and its current statutory functions have become even more significant in recent years as government and the private sector ameliorate challenges caused by dwindling oil revenue by focusing greater attention on increased exports.
“Without doubt, the efforts of NEXIM, including that of its Business Development department being headed by Honourable Okotete over the past four years, has continued to enhance export diversification in line with the Federal Government’s trade policy and best practice.
“As she celebrates her birthday today, we rejoice with Honourable Stella Okotete, not just as an accomplished Urhobo daughter or as a great Niger Deltan but also as an uncommon patriot whose commitment and dedication to duty is making positive impact on Nigerian businesses, citizens’ lives, and the government’s agenda for economic development.
“Her long interest in Millennium Development Goals advocacy and attention for children’s issues, civil right, humanitarian relief and other causes have continued to endear her to many and I join all her family members, associates and admirers in wishing Honourable Okotete a happy birthday as well and many more productive years ahead,” Senator Omo-Agege stated.
