Friday 14th December 2012 was a memorable day for Dr. Christopher Kolade and the members of the Nigeria Leadership Initiative as they wrapped up 2012 with an award night celebrating its members and also the birthday of Dr. Kolade. 

It started with a cocktail reception with top class people on the red carpet and then the awards proper kicked off.

Guests were serenaded to soft music by B-Jay Sax.

In attendance were former President Olusegun Obasanjo, Minister for Trade and Finance Olusegun Aganga and Senator Olorunibe Mamora to name a few.
Some of the award recipients were late Mrs. Sholarin, Hajia Salamatu and Mr. Lateef. 
Mr Lateef got an award for honesty and integrity for returning money he found on a plane (£800) 

Christopher Kolade thoroughly enjoyed the night, especially when a documentary produced in his honour and based on his biography was shown to the audience. The surprises went on as a large cake was presented to him and former president Mr. Olusegun Obasanjo proposed a toast to him.


The event was co-ordinated by Zapphaire Events and the Decor was done by Furtullah events
