Bishop Onuoha honored with prestigious NRB international award

Bishop Dr. Sunday Onuoha, founder and president of Vision Africa, was recently honored by National Religious Broadcasters with the prestigious NRB Award for International Individual Achievement for his leadership of Vision Africa Radio in southeast Nigeria.

The award, based on a thorough review by a panel of NRB International Committee judges, is presented annually to a non-U.S. resident who demonstrates a strong personal commitment to proclaiming Christ through electronic media.

Vision Africa Radio, which runs Love 104.1 FM in the city of Umuahia, broadcasts 24×7 in a region with a population of more than 20 million.

“Love 104.1 FM brings messages of hope, healing, reconciliation and education to Nigeria,” Bishop Onuoha said. “Since Love 104.1 FM began broadcasting in 2005, it has played a critical role in seeing thousands come to a saving faith in Jesus Christ. Marriages have been restored. God has used the station to ignite a great transformation across the region.”

NRB presented the award to Bishop Onuoha during an awards banquet at the organization’s annual conference in Nashville in February 2016. Three years earlier, the Nigerian Broadcasters Merit Awards named Love 104.1 FM its Station of the Year in southeast Nigeria.

“The team of professional Christian broadcasters who operate the station are dedicated to sharing God’s love with excellence and with a passion for seeing many come to faith in Christ,” said Steven Ross, chairman of Vision Africa’s Board of Directors. “We are thankful that God has raised up a team committed not only to broadcasting the Gospel with uncompromising integrity, but also raising awareness about social issues such as HIV/AIDS, malaria, family values, the importance of education, respect for others and social order.”
