Kanu, others get BLAG honour

Nwankwo Kanu

Former Super Eagles captain and founder of the Kanu Heart Foundation, Nwankwo Kanu, has been listed among three Nigerian entrepreneurs for honour by a non-profit organisation, Business Leadership Awareness Group (BLAG), for their contributions to humanity.

Others listed for the award are Oil & Gas expert, Walter Wagbatsoma and philanthropist, Sade Okoya and the occasion that the trio would be conferred with the honour would be at an event scheduled to hold later this month in Lagos.

According to Executive Director of BLAG, Ossy Otegba, the organisation is working on a yearbook that will promote the awardees with a view to encouraging them to do more for the society.

Kanu, who rose from a humble background but rose to fame with remarkable exploits in football and business, owns a chain of businesses with diverse interests in oil, property, hospitality and photography, in addition to his charitable work with UNICEF as ambassador.

Wagbatsoma, who is one of Nigeria’s most successful businessmen in the energy sector, is the co-founder of Ontaro Oil & Gas, a pan African oil and gas company renowned for its service delivery.

Okoya, wife of industrialist, Chief Akanni Rasak Okoya, is one of the nation’s most glamorous women and socialites per excellence and awards scholarships to 40 less-privileged Nigerians studying in various institutions of higher learning at home and abroad.
