There was also excitement in the air, as a lot of things to celebrate the African heritage was also on display and staff were treated to various African meals and snacks throughout the day in their offices.
The highlight of the day was the crowning of the best dressed male and female in African attires, who emerged from votes cast by staff. Two staff emerged winners and were rewarded with an all-expense paid trip to Seychelles.
The three winners selected from both the male and female categories were given cash prices amounting to about N350,000, while the best dressed female, Mrs. Ebeano and Mr. Abdullahi were rewarded with an all-expense paid trip to Seychelles.
