The Nigerian Risk Awards (NRA) recognises and celebrates individuals and organisations that effectively exhibit best practices in risk management, internal control and compliance with an emphasis on developing creative and innovative solutions to overcome challenges facing businesses and organisations in Nigeria. The objectives of the NRA include honouring outstanding risk professionals, inspiring and rewarding them, as well as giving global exposure through technical skills transfer.
