The VKS group, Friday in Uyo, received one of the most coveted media awards at the 2021 edition of the Nigeria Press Week Union of Journalists, Akwa Ibom State Council.
The award – Award of Excellence for Meritorious Service to the Growth of Infrastructure Development in Nigeria – is designed to celebrate individuals and organizations who have not only excelled in their fields of endeavor, but have contributed to the development of infrastructure in the countries, including roads and other physical infrastructure.
VKS Group, a Turkish group of companies based in Akwa Ibom State, has subsidiaries VKS Nigeria Construction Limited, Jubilee Syringe Manufacturing Company and Kings Flour Mill.
In addition to their contributions to the economic development in Akwa Ibom and in Nigeria, the VKS group is renowned for its ongoing support to businesses and groups, including the NUJ, in Akwa Ibom.
The prize awarded to the VKS group by NUJ is the third media prize awarded to it in 2021.
In April 2021, VKS Group Managing Director and CEO Onur Kumral was honored by the Guardian Newspaper among Nigeria’s 100 Most Proactive and Results-Driven CEOs in 2020.
A month later, he became the CEO of the Year 2020 awarded by the Daily Independent Newspaper.
In his reaction, Onur Kumral, Managing Director / Managing Director of VKS Group, said that a coveted award, especially one from an organization like NUJ, is not given for free, it has to be earned.
