Any individual can be nominated for The Nigerian Citizens Special Awards (NCSA) provided that they have had a meaningful impact on those around them. Nominees come from all corners of the Nigeria, all cultural backgrounds, and from all sectors of the community. The defining common aspect amongst nominees is that they have made life better for those around them.
Nominations will require validation, the first level of which is the seconding of all individual submissions. The Independent Assessment Panel will then require evidence that the achievements, commitment and dedication outlined in the application form has brought benefit to any given community or group. Finally, the panel will need to ratify the application before an award will be made. Sometimes additional information will be sought and this can be supplied by post or email in most cases. The robust process ensures that the award becomes meaningful, sought-after and long-lasting.
