The event was held by the young people of Sierra Leone in commemoration of the African Youth Day.

Sierra Leone Students Union President, Felix Koroma made the formal presentation to the deserved business tycoon at the ceremony.

British Council Director, Aunty Linda and Deputy Minister of Finance and Economic Development, Dr. Richard Konteh were also awarded during the said ceremony.

The awards were in recognition of the laudable contributions made by these personalities towards the country’s youths in particular and national development as a whole.

Secretary General of the Young Leaders Network, Mohamed Sillah Sesay said the young leaders recognized the invaluable role Mr. Navo has been playing in relation to developing and empowering youths in the country.

"Junior Navo has been very instrumental in empowering the country’s youth and has played an outstanding role towards the progress of the network," he pointed out.

He explained that Mr. Navo is always willing to come to the aid of young leaders.

"As youths, we are proud to award Mr. Navo with a certificate of merit that formally declares him an Ambassador for Sierra Leonean youths," the Secretary General stated.

Mr. Sillah said the network has over the years achieved great things and can now boast of being the only youth network that has held the biggest youth conference in the United States.

Mr. Junior Navo has severally proved to be one of Sierra Leone’s finest sons who is always at the forefront of promoting fellow Sierra Leonean youths. He is on record to have donated computers, televisions and other items to tertiary institutions in the country, including Fourah Bay College, Njala University and the Milton Margai College of Education.

Prior to the 2007 Presidential and Parliamentary elections, Mr. Navo constructed 20 taps which now provide potable water for residents of the Fourah Bay Community in Freetown.

Speaking to Awareness Times shortly after the award ceremony, Mr. Anthony Navo Junior expressed appreciation for honour bestowed on him by youths of the country. "Acknowledging my input to the progress of youths in this country is indeed a big pride to me and this has inspired me to continue in that direction," Mr. Navo told Awareness Times.

He says he will continue to assist and advocate for the youths of Sierra Leone.

"I would like to congratulate the President on his promise to establish a youth commission," he said, while pleading that the individual who will be appointed to head that commission should be of a youthful age.
