The Mo Ibrahim Foundation Affirms Governor Okorocha’s Sense Of Judgement As Ellen Johnson Sirleaf Wins The Mo Ibrahim Price For Achievement In African Leadership
Immediate past President of Liberia and one of the recipients of Imo State’s grand-chancellor Laurel, Ellen Johnson Sirleaf has won the elusive Mo Ibrahim Price for Achievement in African Leadership. The price which is usually presented to individuals who had served meritoriously as heads of government in African countries has not had a winner for about three years now, as no past African head of government was found to have lived above board within the period they served their countries.
Sirleaf who is Africa’s first female president was picked for the five million dollars Laurel because of her exceptional leadership credentials which saw her stabilize the African country torn apart by war and also superintended over the first ever peaceful transition in the history of that country.
Mrs Sirleaf was among African statesmen and women who were recently recognized by Owelle Rochas Okorocha administration in Imo State for their special leadership and humanitarian interventions. She also earned herself a statue and also got a road in the State named after her.
