These entries are right now being assessed by the judges and we look forward to recognising and rewarding the very best among them during the award night,” Tax Partner at PwC Nigeria and head of the awards steering committee, Taiwo Oyedele said.

In addition to the cash prize of N500, 000 to be presented to the winner in each category, selected entries that meet certain criteria of quality and relevance will also be recognised and celebrated at the award night.
