The 2018 recipients were Dr. (Mrs.) Obiageli (Oby) Ezekwesili in recognition of her concern and empathy towards the well-being of the Nigerian masses, championing the Bring Back Our Girls campaign over the past few years and ensuring that the missing girls are not forgotten by the Nigerian government, and Her Excellency, Betsy Obaseki, First Lady of Edo State, for putting her best efforts towards the eradication of human trafficking and modern slavery, thereby saving our youth from misery, and empowering them to lead better lives.
