Oluseyi Awojulugbe, Chinedu Asadu, senior reporters with TheCable, and Femi Owolabi, head of investigations at Cable Newspaper Journalism Foundation (CNJF), were named finalists at the PwC Media Excellence Awards.

At the awards ceremony, which held on Friday at Radisson Blu Hotel in Ikeja, they were named first runners-up in the Business and Economy, Tax Reporting and Capital Market Reporting Category.

Awojulugbe’s story, CBN to refund N1.3trn to MTN? A dummy’s guide to the ‘dividend’ saga and Asadu’s report: ANALYSIS: The ups and downs of tax reforms under Buhari were considered by the judges.

Owolabi’s story, UNDERCOVER: Inside Niger Delta creeks where oil thieves feed fat after bribing soldiers with millions, was selected as second in the Business and Economy category.

The PricewaterhouseCoopers Media Excellence Awards celebrates and rewards excellence in business reporting in Nigeria.

Three days earlier, Asadu was shortlisted for the Kurt Schork Memorial Awards in International Journalism.

In September, Owolabi was shortlisted for the maiden edition of the Free Pens for Democracy award in Strasbourg, France.

He was shortlisted alongside Jamal Khashoggi of the Washington Post, Sahil Chinoy of the New York Times, and 17 other journalists from reputable newspapers across the globe.

With three years of professional journalistic experience, Asadu and Awojulugbe have been shortlisted and won local and international awards.

In May, Awojulugbe won the APO Group Prize for Journalism and won an all-expense-paid trip to the annual meetings of the African Development Bank (AfDB).

In 2018, she won third place in the Tax Reporting Category in the PwC Awards and was named a finalist in the AfricaCheck Fact-checking Awards.

Asadu was also named first runner-up in the Capital Markets Reporting Category at the 2018 PwC Awards.

In 2016,  Owolabi was first runner-up in the Online Category at the Wole Soyinka Award for Investigative Journalism, for his four-part series, The blight on humanity and the resilience of a people, published in December 2015.
