Presenting the award to the political activist, the Speaker of the Youth Parliament, represented by Christella Kouma from Côte d’Ivoire, said the award is retrievable if Usman Okai Austin compromises standard when it comes for standing in for justice and sincerity.

Christella Kouma described Okai as “truly better by far, especially considering now that so many comrades are compromising standard and for that he deserves all the accolades from sincere Pan African Movement”.

The Youth Parliament Speaker said, “It is wise and patriotic to invest in leaders like Usman Okai Austin CNA, a man whose attributes are well-known; a person that understands and embodies the core value and aspiration of the youth, particularly the students, in our abiding quest for unity, peace, prosperity, mutual respect and peaceful co-existence.”

In his response, Okai Austin, who was overwhelmed, dedicated the award to God almighty who protects him and his wife, Mrs Bridget Fedoje Enemali, from the hands of their enemies.

Okai added that he is this kind of a man who does not want to be praised by anybody and will not at any time, or in any way, demand for recognition hence, the award was a great surprise to him.

Comrade Austin said that he is still wondering how the Parliament noticed his activities.

Also present at the event are officials from the regional office including Solmem Carine from Mali and Stephane Besso from Benin Republic.
