…event to hold on November 12 in Enugu
Following the recently concluded nominations for awards in some categories by The Pacesetter Frontier Magazine for the second edition of her Annual Public Lecture Series and Awards dubbed Frontier Discourse, and the entire voting process which saw a record total of 24,931 votes spread across 20 countries of the world, the Magazine has announced the emergence of notable Nigerians as recipients of the awards.
Speaking, the Ag. Editor in Chief of the magazine, Daberechukwu Egbo, noted that the editorial team of the magazine deliberately omitted some categories from the voting process and that under some categories, as was previously done, two persons emerged.
In her words “2021 and 2022 are the years in focus for all categories of awards.
"The editorial team deliberately omitted some categories from the voting process. Recall that we earlier mentioned that in the maiden edition, we had seven award categories. However, the board approved the addition of new categories, bringing all the categories to eleven.
"Also, like we did in our maiden edition, some categories will have more than one recipient but not more than two, while the other categories will have just a recipient".
