To support effective policy and market responses on financial empowerment, Development Initiatives Network (DIN), a development organisation has unveiled the financial literacy award to such end.

Tagged the Financial Literacy Excellence Awards (FiLEX), the initiative seeks to provide a platform to celebrate leadership and innovations that have improved financial literacy in Nigeria.

DIN’s Chief Executive Officer, Dr. Bola Fajemirokun in a statement explained that the FiLEX awards aim to showcase and celebrate leadership and innovations that have improved financial literacy in Nigeria.

She stated that for the winners in the three awards categories, the FiLEX awards will be a prestigious platform for demonstrating their strong commitment to delivering brand or social values relating to the empowerment of financial consumers in Nigeria particularly given the rise of digital finance, that is, the cashless revolution.

“Nominations for the Awards, which can only be made online at www.filexawards.com, opened on 30th October 2015 and will close on 30th November 2015. Winners will be announced in December 2015 and the winners will be presented with their Awards at the inaugural FiLEX Awards Conference in January 2016, which will be attended by high-level government representatives and major corporate and civic leaders.
