Africa’s biggest youth event, The Future Awards Africa came to a triumphant climax on Sunday when it held its annual ceremony, now in its 11th year.

We were introduced to the key players shaping the future in the 105 nominees identified across 21 categories. The event was well attended by Nigeria’s political, cultural, media and entertainment elite. The keynote speech was given by the President Elect of The Republic of Ghana, Dr. Nana Akufo-Addo.

However, there could only be 21 winners. The biggest prize of the night went to Nigeria’s youngest commissioner, Mark Okoye, who heads the Economic Planning and Budget Development Team in Anambra State. Okoye brings tenure as a senior member of the investment banking division at Afrinvest (West Africa) Limited where he was instrumental in executing numerous capital raising and financial advisory transactions to his new position,leaving  an illustrious investment banking career, to join the Anambra State Economic Think-Tank.
