(elbcradio.com/Oct. 21, 2015)-The Prestigious Nigerian Pilot Newspaper has nominated President Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf as its “2015 Personality of the Year.”

In a letter, the Nigerian Pilot Newspaper said the selection of President Johnson-Sirleaf is based on her outstanding leadership role over the years.

An Executive Mansion release quotes the letter as saying: “The President is being recognized for transforming Liberia from a war-ravaged nation to one of the most successful African countries.”

The release also said the award is also in recognition of the Liberian Leader’s immeasurable contributions to gender mainstreaming on Liberia’s national development agenda.

According to the release, the award will be presented President Johnson-Sirleaf at the Congress Hall of the Transcorp Hilton Hotel in Abuja, Nigeria.

It will be presented at a formal ceremony in December 2015.
