Isaac Anyaogu



I am an award-winning business journalist with West Africa's biggest business daily, BusinessDay, based in Lagos, Nigeria. I also edit the paper's renewable energy section.

My reporting focuses on environment, energy, sustainability, health and technology and I also carry out investigative reporting on issues within these sectors.

I won the 2018 Citi Journalism Excellence Award and emerged first runnerup in the 2018 Sanlam Financial Journalism Award in South Africa. Last year, I also won the PwC media excellence award in Nigeria for reporting on SMEs activities in the offgrid space.

I studied Mass Communication and have attended many training courses related to journalism practice.
