Some Entrepreneurs that distinguished themselves in their business were honoured during the 2015 Nigeria entrepreneurs summit and exhibition in Abuja.
The event, which had the theme, ’Entrepreneurship as panacea for building a prosperous economy,’ was organised by the Nigeria Entrepreneurs Award.
Speaking at the award dinner, the Co-Founder of the organisation, Mr. Uwabor Joshua, observed that entrepreneurs are national treasure that must be protected, nourished, encouraged and rewarded as much as possible.
He said the theme of the event is a way of mapping out solutions to the current bottlenecks being experienced by the entrepreneurs, adding that his platform will be a lifelong one that will provide recognition for entrepreneurs and top business leaders in Nigeria.
Joshua said those given awards are outstanding individuals and corporate organisations that have positively impacted the economy of the country.
In his lecture, the guest speaker, Mr. Benson Uwheru, noted that no nation can assure the security of its people without an economy that offers them the dignity to pursue lives they value and urged the recipients to help build the nation’s economy by empowering young entrepreneurs.
