NYPF Applauds Recognition Of Outstanding Leaders As Heritage Times Holds AH Awards


Nigerian Young Professionals’ Forum (NYPF) has commended Heritage Times on the successful conduct of the second edition of African Heritage Awards in Lagos, where outstanding leaders on the continent were conferred with awards of excellence.

The event which took place in Lagos over the weekend saw former Ghanaian President, John Dramani Mahama, a former leader of Botswana, Lt. Gen. Seretse Khama Ian Khama and others honoured for their contributions towards the development of the continent.

The 2024 edition of the annual award ceremony had as the theme, “Shaping Africa’s Path To Prosperity”.

In a statement made available to the press in Abuja, the President of NYPF, Mr. David Osadolor applauded the award organisers, Heritage Times, a leading online newspaper publication in Africa with rich contents in politics, sports, lifestyle, entertainment and more for introducing the award ceremony as a way of appreciating those who have left indelible footprint in service of the people.

According to Osadolor, the annual ceremony will not only spur leaders across the political, business and other spectrum of life to give in their best but will serve as a guiding light to young people aspiring for greatness in their various endeavors.

He said, “At a time when service delivery, integrity and honesty is rapidly nose-diving, the culture of excellence can only be revived through recognition of those who have held their head high.

“Interestingly, Heritage Times is strategically doing this when these leaders are alive. Nothing gives greater fulfillment than being recognised while you are still alive than when you are gone.

“It is also a wake-up call on youths and young professionals across who want to stand on the stage of fame in life to begin now to aspire for greatness”, he stated.

Furthermore, the NYPF President revealed that preparations are well underway to launch the NYPF mentorship program, targeting young professionals both domestically and internationally, adding that this initiative aims to empower our youth for the challenges ahead by providing them with opportunities to learn from accomplished mentors.
