Cross River state’s premier online blog www.crossriverwatch.com has been nominated for the MOST ENTREPRISING BLOG award in this year’s national enterpreneurs awards holding in Abuja.
A letter of nomination sent to the management of CrossRiverWatch from the award organizers say the call for nomination opened between April and June 2016.
Part of the letter read, “The Advisory Board and Management of Nigeria Enterpreneurs Award is pleased to inform the management of CrossRiverWatch of its nomination as a recipient for the 2016 edition of the award under the category MOST ENTREPRISING BLOG along with other distinguished recipients.
“The nomination for CrossRiverWatch was verified and screened by our independent auditors after a national call for nomination conducted within the month of April and June 2016 and was published in Thisday Newspaper, Vanguard, Daily Trust, Leadership and other online blogs; searching for corporate organizations, business executives and young entrepreneurs who have contributed immensely to the entrepreneurial growth and development of the Nigeria economy either through policy making, actual practice or CSR programs.”
In his reaction to this development, Managing Editor of CrossRiverWatch, Jeremiah Archibong said the team was shocked and gladdened by the nomination.
“We appreciate respected awards that are not paid for. We don’t know how this came about but I must say that the entire team is shocked, very happy and optimistic that many more of these will come because we are determined to continue doing our work professionally and painstakingly and to turn this to a business model that will inspire others.
“Frankly, it will be a pleasure to share the same podium with other accomplished enterpreneurs come November 18.” he said.
The award night is scheduled for Friday, November 18 at Ladi Kwali hall, Sheraton Hotel Abuja.
