The finalists of the 2019 Nigeria Outstanding Security Performance Awards (OSPAs) have been announced.
Now in their second year, the Nigeria OSPAs serve to acknowledge the creditable and infinite contributions that companies, initiatives, teams and individuals make to the security industry and wider community. The awards recognise exceptional industry talent and innovation in different categories.
All those that have been selected were marked independently by the esteemed judging panel and all reached a score threshold – ensuring they represent the very best in the industry.
Finalists will now go forward to the next phase of the competition and winners will be announced at the OSPAs awards dinner taking place at Securex West Africa on the 16th April in Lagos. Tickets to attend the ceremony are limited and should be booked without delay.
