    I must take the visioners of this award and must say more consideration should be given to those of us passionately doing our best for society’s betterment in the east as a way of encouragement and empowerment. People in Lagos, Abuja and other big cities have good access to internet and information so may have greater votes/nomination than we in the east due to the people in their cities have accesses to know about this award. We young Nigerians doing good need encouragement and support like this awards.
