“These worthy ambassadors of our great industry are worth celebrating,” he said.

Awoji explained that since the initiative was geared towards recognising both practitioners and supporters of the industry alike, the award has been classified into internal and external awards respectively.

“It is time to look beyond the industry and acknowledge those who have helped us thus far that is why the award is classified into internal and external awards.”

He explained that the categories; the ‘external awards’ include Most Supportive Personality of the Year, Humanitarian Man/Woman of the Year, Most Supportive Clergy Man of the Year and the Most Creative Politician of the Year.
