The awards presentation on Nov. 20 by 11am, was held at Nordica Fertility Center, Ikoyi, Lagos, in a low key, due to the Cornavirus observations.

Only the winners were allowed to attend the awards presentation while informed society participated in the ceremony via zoom.

However, the winners had been notified of their win since June 11, waiting for the pandemic to go down, in a mail sent by Mr. Chukwudi Eze of the fertility centre.
