The Future Africa Awards & Summit (TFAAS) has today released the Nominees List for 2014 for its 10 categories who will be hosted in Lagos July 31 by the Consul-General of US.

The list has five nominees per category and was prepared by the Central Working Committee (CWC) of The Future Africa Awards & Summit (TFAAS).

According to Mohamed Diaby, from Abidjan, who is a member of the CWC. “After last year’s process, where only the Young Person of the Year was Africa-wide, for the first time in the 9-year history of The Future Africa Awards, this is the first time that the entire awards have been drawn from across the continent.”
