DR CEESAY BAGS LEADERSHIP AWARD
Dr Ismaila Ceesay has been conferred with the ‘Pan-African Humanitarian Award For Excellence in Social Leadership and Community Impact.’
The award was conferred on the top political scientist by the Abuja-based Pan African Leadership and Entrepreneurship Development Centre, PALEDEC, at its fourth Pan African Humanitarian Summit held last week in Rabat, Morocco.
The chairman of the advisory board of PALEDEC Brig Gen Dr Amb Wallace Williams, said in a letter that the award was conferred on Dr Ceesay “based on your outstanding leadership qualities, exceptional contribution and persistent efforts to Africa’s development through several bold policies and innovative initiatives geared towards building a prosperous, sustainable, regionally integrated globally competitive Gambia and by extension Africa.”
“This noble pace has set you apart as a role model for others to follow,” Williams said.
Wallace explained that the Pan-African Humanitarian Summit/Awards is an annual event conceived to identify pertinent issues in Africa with a view to providing a holistic and multi-dimensional approach to sustainable peace and development in Africa.
