The IP Institute Nigeria on the 2nd December, 2021 held its Induction Ceremony and Innovation Awards at the Nigerian National Merit House, Maitama, Abuja, FCT.

Speaking at the event, the Director General of the Institute, Mr. Folarin Aluko observed “Todays ceremony seeks to recognize and celebrate the contributions and achievements of our new fellows and Nigerian innovators who are making an impact in our world today.

Indeed 2021 has been an interesting year for creators and IP owners. It is quite interesting that in spite of the pandemic, the 2020s have been declared to be the decade of the Creator. There is definitely a need to recognize the importance of IP as a strategic national asset. This moment calls for deep reflection and so in that light, I congratulate our new fellows, the awardees and everyone who has made today a possibility.”
