  • NOTABLE PEOPLE TO BE AWARDED AT - The West African Citizens Awards 2019



    Life is meaningful if what we do is making an impact in the society. No doubt our society has grown to an enviable position such that great people have created a niche for themselves to the extent of being tagged a celebrity because of their immense contribution to humanity.

    To this effect we have thought it wise to acknowledge them with these awards to encourage and ensure they don't rest on their effort to make the world a better place serving as an avenue to encourage people not to give up because their success stories is coming up soon.

    This vision has led to the creation of West African Citizens Awards which is in its third season tagged "acknowledgement of merit." We knew people had a potential that needs to be loved and appreciated. This awards came to put a smile on their faces and to celebrate our own both in West Africa and beyond. Africa is our own we have to preserve culture, norm, language and diversity.

    Finally, you are valuable, appreciated and celebrated. Thank you all and God bless.
