For his ” Can-Do”spirit, President Mohammadu Buhari has saluted the physically challenged winner of the just concluded PR Award, Ishola Ayodele.
According to a statement from Femi Adesina, special adviser on media and publicity to the president, Buhari said Ayodele had shrugged off physical challenge to be one of the very best in his field.
“The President commends the can-do spirit of Ayodele to other Nigerians in different areas of endeavour, noting that despite a physical handicap, the award winner has followed his passion, and excelled in his field.
“Where there is a will, there’s always a way. This is what Ayodele has proven, and I recommend his attitude to life to all other Nigerians,” President Buhari says.
Ayodele is a consummate PR professional, who has written two books on his field. He is also a prolific writer of articles on strategic communication.
It would be noted that Ayodele recently won the award at La PRIGA, an award ceremony to reward a Public Relations practitioner whose contributions have had significant impact on the growth of PR practice in Nigeria, as well as the professional development of PR professionals.
