I had a dream of an annual event where Nigerians from different walks of life can be honoured and celebrated globally for their great feats of achievement. This dream became a reality in the year 2000 when the Nigerian Achievers Awards Institute was set up to commemorate Nigeria’s fortieth Independence. The Nigerian Achievers Awards Institute is an awards body established to license and host Nigerian awards programmes in different parts of the world. The institute is run by its executive arm alongside an advisory body that is responsible for the approval of awards and also advising on highly technical aspects related to the Institute’s activities.

I am pleased to note that in the year 2017, the Institute formally approved the title of Nigerian British Awards as the brand name to represent the United Kingdom awards programme whilst in the same vein, a formal approval was also issued for the Nigerian American Awards in the year 2018.
