The GBC spoke to Mrs. Hajaratu Limann and  Paul Abudu about the recognition given them.

“Because right now, I cant really say those who were able to single me out among all to be given this award. She the honor has given people more opportunity to know much about me and what I am doing as President of Queenmothers in the Region [Upper West].

Mrs. Hajaratu Limann who is also a member of the Upper West Regional Peace Council advised her fellow queenmothers that whatever they are doing, they should do it very well and with happiness…Do it whole heartedly, one day there could be a reward,” she observed.

From the perspective of Paul Abudu, the award will further inspire him to do more for his community and church.
