Represented by the Director, DG’s office, Barrister Richard Agu, the SON Chief Executive described the retiring Director as a utility player given his sojourn through the Legal Department, Human Resources Department, the Council Secretariat and the Corporate Affairs and SON Consult Directorate.

He congratulated Dr. Angya on a successful career in SON, which saw him perform as the Director General/Chief Executive in acting capacity and wished him well in future endeavours on behalf of the Management and staff.
