It should be noted that Mr Ufot was first nominated for Fellowship two years ago but was not conferred as he was unavoidably absent for the induction. According to the President of the Institute, Mr Tony Agenmomen  “Fellowship of the institute is not for sale. That is why we insist that qualified recipients must be personally present to take the oath and be formally inducted into the institute”

The National Institute of Marketing of Nigeria is the professional body for marketing professionals and institutions involved in marketing and related fields in Nigeria.
