The organisation also commended the Ambassador for his continued support for its programmes, particularly the Anti-Corruption Situation Room (ACSR) and the fight against corruption generally.

In a letter written to the Ambassador and signed by HEDA’s Chairman, Mr Olanrewaju Suraju, HEDA noted: “On behalf of the Human and Environmental Development Agenda (HEDA Resource Centre), its entire staff and Board Members, we congratulate you on your appointment and recent posting as Nigeria’s Ambassador to Russia. We wish you good health and the guidance of God Almighty as you chart the new path.”

According to the letter titled: “Congratulations on your Appointment and Thank You for Your Continued Support,” HEDA said: “We also use this medium to thank you sincerely for your consistent and unfettered support for HEDA and its programmes, particularly the unique Anti-Corruption Situation Room (ACSR). We feel highly indebted and grateful to you for such selfless services and encouragements that comes with your support.”
