Vice Admiral Emmanuel Ogalla, Chief of the Naval Staff; RT. Hon Sheriff F.O. Oborevwori, Governor of Delta State; Prof. Leroy Chuma Edozien, Ubili Ka Nkwu Ahaba; IGP Kayode Egbetokun; and Pastor Ikechukwu Edmund Ezeobi, are some of the personalities that would be honoured with the sixth edition of the Nigerian Silent Heroes Award (NSHA) on Saturday, June 8, 2024, at Cabana Hall, Wells Carlton Hotel, Asokoro Abuja.

While Ogalla was nominated as a Silent Hero in Maritime Security; Oborevwori

was picked as a Silent Hero in Infrastructure Development; Edozien will be honoured as a Silent Hero in Medicine and Politics in recognition of his contribution to the development of Nigeria and selflessness in service to humanity; IGP Egbetokun as Silent Hero in Policing; and Ezeobi would be honoured as a Silent Hero of Faith for his pastoral works spanning over two decades, both locally and internationally.

The 2024 annual NSHA ceremony, which is the sixth, in the series is being hosted by SHA Initiative, a non-governmental organisation, aiming to express gratitude of society to the award recipients for their kindness towards fellow individuals, families, community and environment and their silent heroic service to fatherland.

The initiative was conceived by the founder, Odita Sunday-Udemaguna, an influential journalist and humanitarian who noted that “In our larger society, there are men and women who are silently working assiduously behind the scenes to oil our nation’s wheel of progress.

“These people are SILENT HEROES in their own right but have largely remained unsung and under-celebrated. Believe it or not, they are the reason our nation has made the modest progress recorded in different spheres in contemporary times.”

Other nominees include Minister of state for Defence, Dr. Bello Muhammed Matawalle, MON as Silent Hero in Governance; Alhaji Jibrin Baba Nadace, Director General, Voice of Nigeria as Silent Hero in Journalism; and Dr. Awele Elumelu, CEO Avon Medical Practice as Silent Hero in Medicine.

as Silent Hero in Police Image Management; Dr. Ejikeme Odumegwu Owelle as Silent Hero in Philanthropy; Alex Nwankwo, CEO Amity Global Network as Silent Hero in Image Management; and Evelyn Usman, Asst. Crime Editor Vanguard Newspaper as Silent Hero in Journalism (Print Media).
