The honour was bestowed on him at the 2017 Nigeria Mobile Economy Summit Awards (NIMES 2017) held Thursday at the Oriental Hotels, Victoria Island in Lagos.

According to the Director, Special Project, CeCAD, Mr. Hilary Damissah, the award was in recognition of Mr. Nweke’s efforts in keeping the nation’s Information and Communication Technology (ICT) sector abreast of issues as it happens and updated in the global sphere, via ITRealms Online where he is leading the team of editorial staff as the Editor-in-chief.

Presenting the award to Mr. Nweke, the Chairman, Digital Africa Group, and former Executive Director, Operations at Unity Bank plc, Dr. Evans Woherem, commended him for standing out among equals, especially as new media gradually takes its place in the Nigeria mediasphere and through ITRealms and other platforms that form part of DigitalSENSE Africa Media group.
