The Central Working Committee recently released a list of select students who showed academic prowess and graduated with outstanding grades within the past year.

“The Future Awards Africa gives a prize for academic achievement because we believe it is essential to celebrate achievers not only after they have made groundbreaking discoveries, but when they have shown great promise,” said Bukonla Adebakin, Senior Advisor, The Future Project.
“We are proud to lead the charge in this regard and spotlight these amazing achievers who, no doubt, are tomorrow’s legends,” she concluded.
