Charlyboy, Patience Jonathan Honoured By CPC At Its NICA Awards

                      

Charly Boy aka AreaFada and Her Excellence, Dame Patience Jonathan were among other deserving Nigerians that were honoured by The Consumer Protection Council (CPC) at its Nigerian Consumer Ambassador Award (NiCA).
The event that held at the Sheraton Hotel and Towers considered several prominent Nigerians who have lived up to expectation in consumer related matters for different awards. Among the recipients of the different awards were her Excellency, Mrs. Patience Jonathan, Charlyboy, AKA AreaFada and a host of others.
Charlyboy, who was given one of the highest awards alongside the First Lady, was honored with the Nigerian Consumer Ambassador Award (NiCA). This award, according to the organizers was in consideration of his several activities relating to the protection of consumer’s rights, especially as a dogged fighter and a social crusader who has maintained a steady ground behind Nigerian consumers.



                     

It would be recalled that Charlyboy during his tenure as the PMAN president had stood against piracy, taking the fight to Alaba and other places where laws on intellectual property were completely violated. His action was a wakeup call to Nigerian Musicians and other artists who were working without intellectual and creative compensation. His campaign against piracy gave the industry a new face, hence the present success in the Music industry as consumers of music and films are beginning to enjoy better productions from its original source.
Also featured in the CPC awards were Service Excellence Award, Product Excellence Award, and Corporate Social Responsibility Award.



                  
Responding, Charlyboy commended the organizers for such a thoughtful and remarkable event, pledging his continuous support for CPC as an Ambassador. According to him, “You see, this Award will boost our continuous selfless service for Nigerian consumers. It shows that some people appreciate some of the little effort we make to ensure that consumers enjoy the value of what they pay for. 

In a predominant capitalist environment like ours, there is a tendency that the people get exploited by the bourgeois materialists, but some people must always stand in their defense. This needs a lot of sacrifice. I pledge my continuous support for CPC as we all hope for a better Nigeria.
