According to the founder and coordinator of the awards, Ken Egbas, “Nigeria being the most populous nation in Africa with a greater number of her population affected, the world expects Nigeria to lead the African charge in making inroads against hunger, disease and ending environmental degradation and climate change and helping to put in place infrastructure and processes that will sustain progress.
“The task ahead is how we rise to the challenge to provide apt and innovative public-private sector collaborations and partnerships that will set Nigeria on the path to attaining the SDG’s. This will require new levels of investments and accountability, as well as leadership and solidarity.”
The theme for 2015 edition of the award is “Building Partnerships for a Sustainable Future: Business Leadership as a Catalyst for Development.”
