Nwanjoku revealed that 150 people were shortlisted for the award across the globe. He said further those shortlisted were vigorously scrutinised before the decision to honour Senator Ekweremadu was unanimously agreed upon.

 Prince Arthur Eze, a business tycoon was said to have won the award in 2015, but no one was honoured with the award in 2016 as the qualified candidates were vetoed by members of the committee.
