The search teams for the 2019 Indomie Independence Day Award (IIDA) for Heroes of Nigeria, an annual corporate social responsibility initiative of Dufil Prima Foods Plc, have hit various locations across the country to begin mop up of entries for the next Indomie heroes.

The brand has also made story submission easier for members of the general public with the introduction of a dedicated Whatsapp line for members of the public to share heroic stories in their neighbourhood.

Meanwhile, two independent research agencies, Mark Analytics & Research Services Ltd and BanahGrace Research Agency have been deployed to thoroughly comb the country and seek the young heroes out for recognition.

Speaking on this development, the managing partner/principal consultant, Mark Analytics & Research Services Limited, Mr. Magnus Adiele and managing director, BanahGrace Research Agency, Ms. Abiola Olaonipekun, assured that all stories would be thoroughly verified.

In a statement, the group public relations and events manager of Dufil Prima Foods, Mr. Tope Ashiwaju, said the search process, targeted at identifying and rewarding Nigerian children aged 15 years and below for unique acts of heroism, is expected to gather true experiences from designated locations about children, who have at one time or the other performed exceptional acts of bravery.

He added that the search exercise which kicked-off May 20, 2019, is taking place in 12 locations, which are Lagos, Osun, Ekiti, Kano, Katstina, Jos, Abuja, Kwara, Cross River, Delta, Enugu and Imo. He said the exercise would last for a duration of eight weeks ending July, 12 2019.

“The search teams, comprised of ten searchers per location is headed by a supervisor to ensure quality control and authenticity of the collected stories,” he said.

Ashiwaju however noted that the search exercise would not be limited to the field search alone, as there were other avenues through which entries could be received. Such avenues include designated phone lines, emails, delivery of letters at the project office and the introduction of a designated whatsapp number, saying that these are all expected to give opportunities for more entries from every part of the country.
