The Haashim Initiative for Community Advancement (HICA), the organiser of the Countryside Emerging Leaders Fellowship (CELF) has announced prize awards for outstanding fellows in the just concluded camping exercise for the second edition of the fellowship.
Announcing the prizes on Thursday, Convener of CELF, Mallam Lawal Olohungbebe, who appraised the outstanding performance of the fellows, said it was difficult picking the best considering that all the participants put in their best efforts to justify their selection for the programme. He, however, noted that some fellows, more than others, met the specific requirements spelt out for some awards and the requirements of the donors.
While again expressing his gratitude to the donors for their consistent support for the fellowship, Olohungbebe emphasized the resolve of the organisers to always prioritize merit and transparency in all activities relating to CELF.
