Omobayo Azeez, Others Win OnePipe Writing Challenge
The inaugural Writing Challenge, organized by a leading Banking as a Service (BaaS) enabler, OnePipe, has produced three winners, who will receive N1 million each for their efforts.
The top three finalists of the competition were Daniel Adeyemi of TechCabal, Omobayo Azeez of Business Metrics Nigeria and Sultan Quadri of TechCabal.
Earlier this year, the OnePipe Writing Challenge called for entries from journalists in Nigeria, and they were required to focus on raising awareness of embedded finance in 400 to 500-word articles for assessment.
One of the winners, Mr. Omobayo Azeez, said, “I am delighted to have been chosen as the winner of this contest." Initiatives like this one play a critical role in motivating high-quality journalism that informs the public on critical issues. I’d like to congratulate my fellow winners and thank the OnePipe team and judges for coming up with and carrying out this great idea. ”
