The Society of Women Accounts of Nigeria (SWAN) is set to award LEADERSHIP Newspapers with a humanitarian Award of Excellence for its balanced reportage amongst other media houses.

The awards will be presented to LEADERSHIP Newspaper at Reiz Continental Hotel, Abuja on December 1, 2018.

In a notification letter made available to LEADERSHIP signed by the chairperson SWAN, Abuja, Mrs Ijeoma Ugwunebo, it said as one of the leading media companies in Nigeria, the institute recognises the paper’s invaluable roles in ensuring accountability in governance and the development of the nation.

Ugwunebo said the award is also in recognition of the outstanding support of LEADERSHIP Newspaper to growth and national development of professional women, particularly SWAN.

‘’We will like to show our appreciation to your organisation by conferring LEADERSHIP with an Award of Excellence during the SWAN Abuja end of year dinner and award night.

“This award is in view of your contributions to national development through humanitarian works, community development and youth evolution as a vocal voice in the journey to nationhood,’’ she said.

Ugwunebo said the event ‘’will be a forum to celebrate its successes for the period and appreciate some organisations and dignitaries who have contributed immensely to the successes recorded by the society.’’
