Family institutes DAAF Awards for Nigerian health journalists

THE family of late AbdulAziz Anako Fache (DAAF), a doctor, has launched memorial awards in his honour.



    The awards invite applications from print and electronic media reporters covering the Nigerian health sector.

    Entries for the two award categories, each with a cash reward of N250,000, will be accepted beginning in March 2024. The award ceremony will take place in September of same year.

    The family instituted the annual awards to immortalise DAAF, who died tragically of cardiac arrest on September 22, 2022, at 53.

    The deceased immediate elder brother, a former Director of Public Affairs at the National Agency for Foods and Drugs Administration and Control (NAFDAC), Abubakar Jimoh, a doctorate holder, said the awards were instituted to promote hard work, dedication, diligence and excellence in health reporting in Nigeria.
