The World Forum for Ethics and Business based in Belgium has awarded the publisher of Next, Dele Olojede, this year’s Ethics in Business Award in the outstanding individual category.

The award is an annual prize conferred by the World Forum for Ethics in Business to honour individuals and companies that have shown the highest regard for human values and ethics in life and in the business arena.

The Award was instituted in 2006, and is presented at the annual International Leadership Symposium organized by the World Forum for Ethics in Business.

Born in 1961, Mr. Olojede was earlier this year ranked 66th amongst the 100 most creative people in business in 2010.

The first African-born journalist to win a Pulitzer Prize, for his reporting on Rwanda for Newsday, he returned to Nigeria to start an independent news organisation, NEXT, with a parent company, Timbuktu Media.
