The first-of-its-kind guide was created to honour outstanding PR professionals in Nigeria and to mark World PR Day, celebrated annually on July 16 across the globe.

The PR Power List acknowledged individuals who beyond securing column inches and primetime interviews, have engaged influential voices to stay ahead of the curve in brand perception and narratives, deftly managed crises, and reputations, and created stories that have changed minds and shaped narratives in Nigeria.

Responding to the award, Aina said: “I am pleased to have been included in GLG Communications’ inaugural annual PR Power List celebrating outstanding PR professionals in Nigeria to mark World PR Day, held globally on July 16”.
