AFREXIM Bank, SIFAX bosses, others get recognition


The President and Chairman of the Board of Directors African Export-Import Bank, Prof Benedict Okey Oramah; Chairman of SIFAX Group, Dr Taiwo Afolabi; President Hakainde Hichilema of Zambia and other leaders have been nominated for Year 2021/2022 Zik Prize in Leadership Awards.

In a statement signed by Head, Selection Committee, the Public Policy Research and Analysis Centre, Prof. Pat Utomi, organisers of the Award, stated that it was instituted to recognise and encourage outstanding leadership on the African Continent and in the Diaspora.

The Zik Prize in Leadership Awards, which was established in 1995 by PPRAC in honour of the first President of Nigeria, Dr. Nnamdi Azikwe, will be held on Sunday, November 19, 2023, at the Eko Convention Centre, Lagos.

PPRAC said, “Held every year, it was put on hold last year as a mark of respect following the passage of two members of the Advisory Board; Prince Emeka Obasi erstwhile Executive Secretary and Prof George Obiozor in March and December 2022.  The reason this edition is a combination of winners across year 2021 and 2022.”
