According to the CEO, the essay competition remained a very strong element of the Institute’s corporate social responsibility, which has translated to being a strategic platform for capacity development for the youth in the areas of research and knowledge management as well as an avenue to achieve its mandate for national development of the economy.
“Today, we would be celebrating these young achievers in the success of their submissions to the Essay Competition, and indeed we are happy as an Institute that we continually strive in our bid to contribute to the development of our economy through capacity development and engagement of our future leaders,” she stated.
