Executive Governor of Delta State, Dr Emmanuel Eweta Uduaghan, CON, is our PERSONALITY OF THE YEAR 2013. The vote among the editors was unanimous, which is rare since we started recognising the most outstanding people every year in our society. Uduaghan grew up under his grandmother in Mosogar, near Warri in Delta State.
Dangote, Uduaghan and Innoson
Alhaji Aliko Dangote, MFR, GCON, winner of Nigeria’s Centenary Award, has proved that there is such a thing as “The Nigerian Dream”, which is a prime reason that foreign investors have reversed the tide of divestment in Nigeria and are coming in such droves that Nigeria has now been designated the most attractive investors’ destination in Africa.
He is Vanguard’s AFRICAN OF THE YEAR 2013, and this Newspaper is honoured and privileged to celebrate this industrial icon today.
Mr. Innocent Ifediaso Chukwuma, OFR, Okpuzu Ndi Igbo did not need public funds to translate his own visions to reality. He indeed did not need doctorate degrees. Chukwuma through ingenious business wizardry and hard work transformed the limitations around him to advantage and along the way, put himself at the forefront of what could become Nigeria’s real industrialization.
He is Vanguard’s MOST INNOVATIVE INDUSTRIALIST OF THE YEAR 2013.
Expected at the event which will take place at the New Grand Ball Room of Lagos Oriental Hotel at 5pm are Vice President Namadi Sambo, GCON as Special Guest of Honour, Chief Olusegun Osoba, CON as Chairman and a host of others.
We enjoin you to watch the event live.
