Women’s International Shipping and Trading Association (WISTA) Nigeria has congratulated its Secretary, Mrs. Chizoba Anyika on her recognition as one of the United Nation’s Generation Amazons to be celebrated by MMS Woman of Fortune Hall of Fame (WoFHoF).
WISTA Nigeria made this commendation in a letter signed by its President, Mrs. Eunice Ezeoke, last week.
The letter read: “We bring you compliments from the Board of Trustees, Diamonds, Executives and distinguished members of WISTA Nigeria and extend our warm congratulations to our Honorable Secretary as you are conferred with the award of UN Generation Amazon in commemoration of United Nations by MMS.”
“WISTA Nigeria rejoices with you on your well-deserved award which is an outcome of your hard work and dedication to duty. We pray that the Almighty God gives you the grace to function in your new role as UN Generation Amazon.”
“We are convinced that you will bring unique competence and experience to this position from your many years of strategic leadership.”
As part of activities to mark the 75th anniversary of United Nations as well as the 2020 MMS Hall of Famers’ Day, notable women from Nigeria’s transportation, finance, oil and gas, among other sectors were selected to be celebrated by MMS WoFHoF as UN Generation Amazons on Wednesday, November 11, 2020.
The MMS event with the theme, “The Third Paradise: A New Thinking on Women and Humanity” will take place at Golden Gate Restaurant, Ikoyi, Lagos and also have provision for online participation.
Anyika, who works with the Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency (NIMASA) as Assistant Director, Shipping Development at the nation’s premier seaport, Apapa port, was also recently elected as the Publicity Secretary of the Chartered Institute of Transport Administration (CIoTA) Nigeria after a fiercely contested election.
Few weeks ago, the management and staff of Autosky Logistics Services also congratulated Mrs. Anyika on her recognition as one of the women to be celebrated as a UN Generation Amazon by MMS.
