As a man connecting the government and the public, he said, he strikes partnership with people from different background with the aim of achieving the gold of peace.
“Masterpeace is a group that advocate for peace, acknowledge people who participate in peace-building. It is believed that bad things happen when good people do nothing,” he said.
He noted that he received the award with mix feelings since he works for the government and the people as well, adding that he is very much active in youth activities.
On his part, Commissioner Anthony Koroma said “I feel honoured and proud for receiving the award, especially when it focuses on acknowledging people who have fought to ensuring peace and development in the country.”
