The 2017 Theme; “Patriotism” was deliberately chosen to carefully address the state of the Nation. Nigeria is evidently and unarguably a land of great potential. This view stems from her enormous natural resources, talents, diversity of culture, population strength and citizens resourcefulness. Great nations in history enjoy only one thing in common; “deliberate effort of citizens to build a secured and prosperous fatherland.”

The TAWA2017 Criteria focus largely on Personality, Market Domination (Companies), Leadership style, Uncommon Patriotism, Entrepreneurship, Level of Success recorded and Degree of Societal Impact.
