|About||The Abuja Merit Awards focuses primarily on recognizing and rewarding exceptional and distinguished personalities from all works of life within the FCT and Nigeria as a whole.|
The annual Abuja Merit Awards was born six year ago (2006) under very unique and exceptional conditions being that the impetus that led to its conceptualization was stimulated by a desire to see those who strive and labor day in and day out to better their fellow man and humanity as a whole get rewarded and appreciated.
It's primary focus is recognizing and rewarding exceptional and distinguished personalities from all works of life within the FCT and Nigeria as a whole. Personalities considered as role-models, pace setters, achievers, socially conscious policy makers, philanthropist etc.
Its birth was greeted with open arms and general acknowledgement which culminated in the full endorsement of the ANNUAL ABUJA MERIT AWARDS by the then Executive Secretary, FCT Social Development Secretariat Garki, Abuja in the person of Barrister Segun Awolowo.
In light of these developments, the maiden edition came up on the 13th of December 2007 at the Aso Hall of the International Conference Centre, Abuja. The second edition held on the 23rd of October, 2008 at the prestigious Executive Hall of the same International Conference Centre Abuja, followed closely by the third edition which took place at the highly reputable Yar'adua Centre, Central Area, Abuja. Subsequent events have also been great successes and full of glamour without losing its primary essence which is to give honor to whom is due.
The splendor and color of these unique award nights can hardly be described as it has attracted a lot of marvelous dignitaries from the business world, corporate and international establishments, government officials like Governors, Senators, Members of the House of Representatives, Ministers, Commissioners and even those classed as ordinary Nigerians graced and received awards under different categories.
