"We are proud to be hosting the Forbes Africa Person of the Year Awards for the second consecutive year in Nigeria," says head of ABN Productions, Zubaidah Haniff. "Last year we were honoured to have Governor Sanusi with us and he walked away with the coveted award."

"ABN Productions is the exclusive event host for CNBC Africa and Forbes Africa as well as the prestigious 'All Africa Business Leaders Awards' (AABLA) and we look forward to hosting even more events of this stature in Nigeria in 2013, including AABLA - West Africa", says Haniff.
