Nzeweofor is being recognised for his humanitarian support to families of dead Police and Army personnel as well as provision of scholarships to their children.
In a letter conveying the award, signed by Mr Kleitsaint Akor, Chief Executive Officer of NDSG, the award was also in recognition of Nzeweofor’s support to the families of Policemen killed during an operation to arrest alleged kidnap kingpin Hamisu Wadume.
The awardee is a strong advocate of made in Nigeria products and owns many companies in Nigeria.
