The Na­tional Bu­reau of Sta­tis­tics (NBS) has won the ‘Best Pub­lic In­sti­tu­tion Award of the Year 2016’.

The La­gos Cham­ber of Com­merce and In­dus­try (LCCI) an­nounced NBS as the win­ner at a cer­e­mony in La­gos re­cently.

The award which was pre­sented by the Pres­i­dent of LCCI, Dr. Nike Akande, was re­ceived on be­half of the man­age­ment of NBS by the Statis­ti­cian Gen­eral of the Fed­er­a­tion, Dr. Yemi Kale.

A state­ment from the NBS on the award stated that: “It should be noted that the award is an out­come of a painstak­ing se­lec­tion process from nu­mer­ous en­tries re­ceived for this award cat­e­gory and backed by feed­backs from in­dus­try and mar­ket in­tel­li­gence.”

It fur­ther stated that the statis­ti­cian gen­eral was very de­lighted about the award and ex­pressed ap­pre­ci­a­tion to the en­tire staff of NBS.

Kale said the award was a re­ward for their tire­less ef­forts in en­sur­ing that qual­ity data were pro­duced in NBS.

He ex­pressed ap­pre­ci­a­tion to Nige­ri­ans who mas­sively voted for NBS dur­ing the se­lec­tion process.

In re­turn, the statis­ti­cian gen­eral promised the pub­lic re­li­able, timely, com­pre­hen­sive and ac­cu­rate data for na­tional de­vel­op­ment.
