The ILMMD is fully accredited by the Federal Government of Nigeria through the Federal Ministry of Education, and licensed by the Corporate Affairs Commission as a professional body of leadership, manpower (Human Resources) and management development.

Her admirable contribution to leadership, manpower, human resource and management development in the society, and her academic attainment both from Nigerian and other international Universities, contributed to the reason for this noble recognition.

Dr Theophilus Cornerstone, the Dean of membership, (Director of membership for the institute), charged the awardees to show their leadership proficiency and honesty wherever they find themselves.

He also charged them to show outstanding professionalism in their areas of leadership responsibilities, to be the most sort after visionary-leaders in the society, be exemplary leaders in accountability, transparency and innovation, and be progressive minded leaders that ask questions on how to make positive lasting impact on others wherever they find themselves.

In response, Dr. Ijeoma Ude expressed her hearty appreciation to God and the Pan African Institution for endowing her with such a great recognition.

In her remark, she commended the institute for shaping the lives of distinguished fellows and its impact in developing leaders through various leadership trainings in Africa.

“This institute is commended for its great impact in influencing people to be useful in their organisations and the society. I see this honour as another call to serve. It has further encouraged me to consistently lead the pace for good leadership in my organisation and by extension, the global community.” She said.
