The categories for the prize are:
- Civil Service
Speaking on the prize, Fela Durotoye CEO of the GEMSTONE Group said “The spirit of patriotism is what I call the spirit of nation building, patriots are the people who carry a spirit that makes them not just citizen of a nation, but custodians of that nation. You know citizens are people who know their right and the benefit they are supposed to get from a nation, but custodians understand that in a sense they not only have rights and benefits, and that’s true, but they have obligation and responsibilities. The Spirit of Patriotism is the Spirit of Custodians”
