OGD To Deliver 2021 Citypeople Awards Keynote Address ln Abeokuta Today~NEWSEXTRA

Welcome To The 2021 City People Awards.As you read  this,all is set for the grand event. This is the 24th edition. Lets tell you a little about the Citypeople Awards For Excellence.
A few months after City People Magazine was born in 1996, the Management of City People introduced this  annual City People Awards for Excellence. That was in 1997. 
Since then, City People has been holding , this popular awards annually.The award is meant to reward Excellence in Business, Politics, Entertainment, Fashion & Beauty and practically all sectors of human endeavour.
  What City People  does annually is to pick eminent and respected Nigerians who have done so well in their various sectors for honour and recognition.
Over the last 24 years, several past Governors have been honoured. So, also Ministers, Senators, Federal and State Lawmakers, Commissioners,  LG bosses and many politicians who have all stood on the City People platform, to collect their awards in person.
Asiwaju Bola Tinubu once attended when he was Lagos Governor. The event was held at The Lagos Sheraton Hotel. Mr. Babatunde Raji Fashola attended one of the awards just before he assumed office as Lagos Governor. Former Ogun Governor, Otunba Gbenga Daniel has also been honoured. Many more personalities have been so honoured.
 There was a year, 7 State governors converged in Lagos for City People Awards  at Ali Baba’s Event Centre in Lekki, Lagos. There was another year 57 Lagos LG bosses attended the City People Awards.
The whole idea, year in, year out, is to celebrate our Leaders and Achievers in their various fields of endeavour. This years Award is holding in Abeokuta, Ogun State one of the major cities where City People has a strong hold. To enrich the quality of today's event, we have invited the erudite scholar and super politician,who is now a  statesman,the 2 term Ogun Governor, Otunba Gbenga Daniel, popularly called OGD, to deliver a keynote address. Many know OGD as an orator and a deep thinker.

At a time like this, our country needs statesmen like OGD, who over the last 2 months, has being on a tour across South-West and Nigeria to meet other political stakeholders, soliciting for  the need to bridge all shades of political interests across the region and Nigeria as a whole.
Recently, he revealed aspects of his thoughts,. “I think the missing link in our politics is about engagements. We need to engage one another.”
 You will agree with  me that all these makes today's  award very unique.
This years awards is also going to be an interestng one, because we would be having many royal fathers in attendance. We would also be having very colourful and exciting people in the house. We have a lot in stock.

Welcome to the 2021 City People Awards for Excellence.
