They were recognised and celebrated at Paradigm Initiative’s headquarters in Lagos, Nigeria during a ceremony also attended by their loved ones, the selection team and PIN Board member, Dr Oluseyi Adebayo Olubi.

The male awardee for the Taiwo Bankole Award is Anthony Maduamaka Ihejiamatu, a Chemical Engineering student at the University of Lagos in Nigeria. In the female category is Adeniran Esther, a student of Project Management Technology at The Federal University of Technology Akure in Nigeria.

For the advanced software training scholarship (Ajegunle Legacy Scholarship), the candidates selected by the panel are Ogar Gideon Robert in the male category and Idowu Sarah Sylvester in the female category.

In April 2023, the organisation launched the Ajegunle Legacy Scholarship as a way of giving back to the community and recognising notable individuals who played an important role in PIN’s early beginning in Ajegunle. The scholarship was named after the area to support resident youth/students in securing university education.

The Project has two arms. The prize arm and the scholarship arm. The prize arm supports two young persons (one male and one female) from low-income families resident in Ajegunle to acquire university education in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) or Law annually. The prize is named after the late Taiwo Bankole Ogunyemi, one of the foremost volunteers at PIN’s digital inclusion program (now known as the LIFE Legacy Program). This award is aimed at immortalising the late Ogunyemi’s name for his role in improving the lives of young people across Nigeria, especially in Ajegunle.

The scholarship arm on the other hand supports two young persons (one male and one female) from low-income families residing in Ajegunle to get advanced software development training annually.
