On the process of the award, he said “From the nominations, voting and announcement of results, the entire process was transparent. The recognition has further validated our belief that the strides of the government of my boss, the Executive Governor of Enugu State, Rt. Hon. Dr. Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi, CON, isn’t going unnoticed.

“I encourage your magazine to extend her scope beyond the Southeast and Southsouth regions. You have all it takes to make it a national media body”, Ugwunta said.

The winner of the Woman of the Time Award, Dr. Dorothy Jeff-Nnamani who is the CEO of Novo Health Africa Ltd, a Health Maintenance Organization and Founder of Youth Entrepreneurship and Leadership Initiative – Yeli, also had great joy for emerging as the winner.


She recounted how she initially didn’t take interest in the process when she received a letter notifying her of her nomination, but how that stance changed when she saw how credibly the entire process was proceeding in the ten days it lasted till she eventually emerged the winner in her category.
