The event, which was presented live on NTA and other TV stations attracted the attention of many Nigerians who have known the Ikot Ekpene born politician cum industrialist and his humble disposition; and those who never knew him but have been hearing of his achievements including the Director-General of the Nigeria Good Governance Group (NGGG), Alhaji Dr. Bala Mohammed and other members of the group who were preparing for the reception of Engr.

On arrival at the venue of the meeting of the Nigeria Good Governance Group (NGGG), the Vice-Chairman, Board of Trustees of the group, Alhaji Muhammad Babayo Maina stated that there was no point reading the profile of Engr.

To uphold the tradition of the panel of selection and adoption of members into the BOT body of the group, an opportunity was given to the Akwa Ibom State Chairman of NGGG, Comrade Anietie Ekpenyong, to introduce Engr. Inyang to the National Working Committee and other members available at the meeting.
In his brief introduction, Comrade Ekpenyong who represented the south-south zonal Chairman described Engr. Etido Inyang as an advocate of good governance, and that he has been supporting the group in various ways since its inception in 2017.
Responding to the adoption into the group’s BOT by the NWC members, Engr. Etido Inyang promised not to relent effort in the work of NGGG as that would proffer solution to the age-long leadership problem faced by the country.
