Honorable Seedy Njie, the Deputy Speaker of the National Assembly is the winner of the African Lawmaker of the Year in the Education legislation and oversight category by African Leadership Magazine.
The African Good Governance Poll rewards outstanding political and government leaders who have exhibited exceptional leadership and outstanding performance in governance. It is a special recognition of African leaders across all levels, including the national and federal governments, provincial and state governments, local and city governments, as well as public sector initiatives and programs that are making outstanding contributions to Africa’s socio-economic development, with concerted efforts towards positioning their respective countries as a cynosure of development in the continent. The awards are part of efforts of the African Leadership Magazine to present the sides of the continent’s political and government leaders, which hardly find placement on global media platforms celebrating exemplary political leadership and good governance on the continent.
The Deputy Speaker of the Gambia will be presented the award alongside other political leaders in Africa in England in May.
