About Who’s who in Anioma
Who’s who in Anioma is an initiative of Homage communications. This Who’s who in Anioma is an annual compendium of One hundred famous men and women from the Anioma area who have positively distinguished themselves in the region within the past one year and have also performed creditably well in their chosen careers. The compilation was done under a strict process by our team of researchers many of who worked so hard and without bias to achieve this based on submissions from well-meaning Anioma citizens the world over on the internet.
It is hoped that the compendium will in the end serve as an official and reliable record for individuals and organizations seeking to gather information from the region and its people.

While we recommend this compilation for public usage, please note that we shall not enter into any inter-personal communication on this compilation with any individual or group whatsoever regarding the listing of names as presented here since our decision is final and non-negotiable just as the group itself is non-political therefore free from political encumbrances.
