Ghanaians from all walks of life have started nominating various individuals who they consider to have affected our society positively for the 2016 edition of e.tv Ghana’s Most Influential Awards.
According to organizers, since the call to entry was opened in December last year, a lot of people have nominated personalities that they feel have been of positive influence to their lives during the year under review.
Ghana’s Most Influential (GMI) Awards is an annual event aimed at recognizing and celebrating the top 100 most influential Ghanaian personalities as voted by the general public.
Kwame Gyan, Head of Brand Communications and Marketing for Global Media Alliance Broadcasting Company (GMABC), the 7th edition of the GMI would be a clear demonstration of how Ghanaians appreciate and celebrate the good works of individuals in the country.
“E.TV Ghana believes in positively affecting society through its programmes and events, hence the establishment of this awards as a platform to acknowledge and celebrate the good works of people.
The rate at which this event has grown over the years tells us that the Ghanaian society is dying for men and women who will effect positive change in the lives of people.”
“The list has over the years consisted of people from both the formal and informal sectors, ranging from entrepreneurs, politicians, musicians, sports men and women, religious leaders and several others.
We are indeed very excited about this year’s event and look forward to seeing who will emerge at the top of the list”, Kwame Gyan added.
The general public can make their nominations by going on www.etvghana.com or by filling out nomination forms available at the e.TV premises. They can also look out for the nomination coordinators in Accra, Kumasi and Takoradi.
