Business Journal has won international recognition as ‘Best Financial Newspaper in Nigeria’ in the 2015 International Finance Awards by Wealth & Finance International Magazine of the United Kingdom (UK).
In the award letter to Business Journal, Jonathan Hicks, the Editor of Wealth & Finance International said: “Business Journal: You Are a Winner in the 2015 Finance Awards!
Congratulations regarding the success of Business Journal in the Wealth & Finance INTL’s 2015 Finance Awards. You have been awarded: Best Financial Newspaper – Nigeria After months of voting, research and hard choices, we have finally decided on the worthy winners of this year’s awards, celebrating the service, skill and dedication of individuals and firms across a multitude of financial disciplines and sizes; from local heroes to national treasures, from single-office firms to international juggernauts- we celebrate them all.
To be named a Finance award winner is no mean feat: it is not only a “stamp” of professional excellence, it is also a badge of merit, integrity and leadership, and these awards have brought together professionals from across the financial world.
Once again, congratulations on your win and I look forward to working with you over the coming weeks!
Commenting on the development, Prince Cookey, Publisher/Editor-in-Chief of Business Journal said: “This award is a testament on the editorial expertise and market excellence of Business Journal newspaper in the Nigerian media industry despite its lean and meager resources.
It reflects the current and future aspiration of the newspaper as a key player in the economic renaissance of the nation and its desire to become a credible reference point in the market.
Our promise is secure: we shall continue to deliver value to our readers, advertisers and other stakeholders going forward. I heartily dedicate this award to our management and staff, and also individuals and corporate organisations that have stood in support of Business Journal over the years.”
In the recent past, Business Journal had been nominated twice for the ‘First Bank Business Publication of the Year’ award by the Nigerian Media Merit Award (NMMA). It came second on both occasions.
