Nominees for the 2018 Future Africa Leaders’ Award (FALA) will be announced on LIVE television via LoveWorld Networks at 6pm GMT+1. The roll-call of extraordinary young people from across the continent of Africa is a highly anticipated moment for applicants and LoveWorld citizens worldwide.
The Future Africa Leaders’ Award was inaugurated by the LoveWorld President, Reverend (Dr.) Chris Oyakhilome, in 2013 to explore and expand the leadership potentials in Africa and for Africa. The organization’s website states that it is “for identifying, celebrating and supporting young Africans who have demonstrated exemplary leadership by impacting their generation positively through education, youth empowerment and mentoring…”
Last year, 30 individuals from 15 African countries were announced as nominees. Of the 30, 10 individuals became FALA Winners, receiving the highly coveted trophy from Pastor Chris at the December 31st Service, which was witnessed globally in 100 countries via satellite and terrestrial television. Ms. Naomi Ekpoki Aliyu became the fifth Star Prize Winner of the awards, among the ten winners selected.
Each winner received $10,000 in prize money, while the Star Award Winner received $25,000 from the founder of the Future Africa Leaders’ Award, Reverend (Dr.) Chris Oyakhilome, to encourage their work.
