Onoriode Reginald Aziza has won the 2018 Junior Chamber International (JCI) award for Outstanding Young Persons of Nigeria in the category of Academic Leadership/Accomplishment.
The JCI is a membership-based non-profit organization of young active citizens aged 18 to 40 in more than 100 countries who are dedicated to creating positive change in their communities. With about 5,000 Local Organizations, JCI forms a vibrant global community of nearly 200,000 active citizens with millions of alumni.
The JCI Ten Outstanding Young Persons award seeks to recognise young Nigerians performing exceptionally in their chosen fields of endeavour.
It would be recalled that we solicited for the votes of members of this group for the young Aziza who was shortlisted as one of the 30 finalists for this year’s JCI Nigeria. Aziza has distinguished himself on three different levels of academic pursuit, graduating from the Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife, with a first class degree, he went on to achieve the same feat at the Nigerian Law School. In June 2015, Onoriode Reginald Aziza graduated from the Cambridge University with another first class degree.
This honour for the Okpe/Agbarho born lawyer is a plus to the Urhobo nation.
Thank you for the support. May we all be celebrated in our fields of endeavour.
