Ngock Jacob was speaking at the Epic Event Centre, Thursday 2nd February 2023 as he received an award from Prime International and the BT Media Group of My Media Prime.

Decorated as the most resilient town planner in the heart of the crisis, Ngock Jacob used the opportunity to edify the media men and women on the need to respect prescriptions done by town planners if politicians and the government wants the kind of cities they dream of.

"In neighbouring Nigeria, it is taken very seriously. Here, our proposals are not taken as highly as there are supposed to be while others just do anything without respecting basic guidelines." Ngock told the Observer.

He used the award ceremony to call on 'Advocate Town planners' to keep advocating for better cities and towns across the country as it serves as a guide to them to deliver on the immediate needs of the inhabitants.
