It was a snapshot of burst of greatness for Vanguard Newspapers in far away Russia, when the Nigerian Ambassador to Russia, Professor Steve Davies Ugbah, for the National Council for Arts and Culture, introduced to Vanguard Newspapers a testament of thankfulness for its gigantic commitment to the accomplishment of the Cultural Support for the Super Eagles at the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia.
Earlier, before presenting the certificate to Vanguard at the Embassy of the Federal Republic of Nigeria on Malaya Nikitskaya Street, Moscow, Russia, Professor Ugba said: “I am particularly happy to see the Nigerian media here because there is a huge gap in knowledge about Russia in Nigeria mainly because of the absence of the Nigerian media in Russia. So I am hoping that as you go back you can impress upon your staff and your decision makers the need to liaise with us to help promote Nigeria here in the Russia Federation. It is the media that will drive the exposure. Whatever people see and read is what they believe and react to. It will also help the Russian media to establish a presence in Nigeria.”
The certificate was received on behalf of Vanguard by the Arts Editor, Osa Amadi, who is in Russia covering the NCAC Cultural Support for the Super Eagles at the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia.
