The winner of this year’s Lagos Chamber of Commerce and Industry (LCCI) Annual Awards for business journalism was presented to our big sister, CNBC Africa as the Best Business Television.

The award which aims to acknowledge the very best of business journalism, comes in recognition of the network’s efforts to highlight the narrative of Africa’s growth and the opportunities present in the continent.

He added that:

“CNBC Africa remains committed to creating value and empowering people by accurately and passionately telling Africa’s business story first; He stated, “To get an award in Lagos, which in my opinion is one of the most vibrant economic and business cities in Africa means a lot.

This award goes to them.”
