During the celebrations commemorating the 50th Anniversary of Equatorial Guinea Independence in Morocco, in Rabat, the Africanity Trophy Foundation presented the Equatorial Guinea Ambassador to Morocco, Crisantos Obama Ondo, with this award granted to the President of the Republic of Equatorial Guinea.
The award is granted to eminent African figures from various areas of social, political and economic life on the African continent. H. E. Obiang Nguema Mbasogo was specifically chosen by this foundation, in recognition of his outstanding work as an Africanist and democrat, and for his determination for peace, security, justice and prosperity for the people of Equatorial Guinea in particular, and for the African continent in general.
The president of the foundation, Nasrallah Belkhayate, before presenting the Award to the Equatorial Guinea Ambassador, highlighted the work done by Obiang Nguema Mbasogo, in promoting a social State under the rule of law, and the inclusion of all national institutions in the construction and definition of the foundations of integrated development in the country.
He also recognised the democratic process in progress in Equatorial Guinea, demonstrating in its nature the idiosyncratic culture, traditions and mentality of the society. The foundation, said the president “subscribes to the appreciation from the African and Africanist media, and other institutions, of the realist policies of H. E. Obiang Nguema Mbasogo. A realist policy that has led the country to make solid progress, creating a positive impact on education and the training of citizens, an improvement to basic infrastructures, progress in health indicators, a strengthening of national institutions, and the new dynamism shown in foreign policy.
These and other reasons are what have induced the Africanity Trophy Foundation to pay deserved homage to H. E. Obiang Nguema Mbasogo,through the presentation of this important award”, concluded the president of the foundation.
For his part, the Ambassador Crisantos Obama Ondo thanked the members of the foundation for their appreciation of the realist, Pan-African policies of the President of the Republic, and promised to pass on the important award to the Head of State at an opportune moment.
