Former President Ernest Bai Koroma is among world leaders, innovators and philanthropists set to receive one of the most prestigious awards from EURONOWLEDGE, a media consulting firm based in the United Kingdom on 30th October, this year.
The former President Koroma occupies a proud place in the list of awardees. The Upper House of the UK Parliament, House of Lords will host the honourable event. Previous awards ceremonies have been held in USA, UK, China, France and UAE.
EUROKNOWLEDGE Leadership award celebrates outstanding achievements in all sectors of development ranging from Governance to Oil and Gas, Philanthropy, Entertainment, Health, Agriculture, Information Technology, Aviation, Construction, Financial institutions and others.
The former President pre-eminently qualifies for the Lifetime Leadership Achievement Award, one of the noblest and prestigious in the world.
Other awards such as philanthropist of the year, Best National Humanitarian Response to Covid-19, Business Leader of the year, Overall Operational Leader, CEO of the year, Social Entrepreneurship Leadership among others are up for grabs by eminent personalities around the globe.
World leaders and presidents, top Global philanthropists, African Ministers of humanitarian Affairs, Safety and Health Environment, Agriculture, hydrocarbons, top Non-Governmental Organisations, captains of industries, Business magnates and institutional investors, top politicians with great leadership qualities and influencers among others are expected to make statements during the occasion.
The award proceedings will take the form of roundtable discussions to recognise the awardees. It is hoped that the discussions would identify succession gaps between budding and incumbent leaders.
A high powered advocacy machinery will be launched to bridge the succession gap thereby making leadership transition thrive in consonance with global best practice.
Former President Koroma’s nomination could not be unconnected to the democratic and good governance credentials he built in Sierra Leone.
The meritorious award will among other things put the former President on the list of most influential personalities on the globe, and connect with other international philanthropists and influencers.
The award also will affirm his determination of his dealings to strengthen the economy, link him with world policy makers and other global billionaires. It also increases the credibility of former President Koroma in the eyes of the international community.
