The prestigious award which is in recognition of his contribution to the welfare and civil society sector in Africa comes barely a month after Mr Asong won similar award at the country [Ghana] and West Africa levels in October this year.

The award ceremony was held on 10th November, 2015 at the Gallagher Convention Centre, in Midrand, South Africa, Mr Asong told the Ghana News Agency on Sunday.

Titans – Building Nations is a recognition programme for the powerful men in Africa which aims to bring to the forefront the unmistakeable prowess of the men shifting the African landscape for the purpose of sustainable growth and on-going development of their nations.

The organisation honours individuals whose work contribute significantly to sustainable development and growth of the Africa continent, covering all sectors of the economy – from businessmen, civil society activists to government leaders across Africa.

Mr Asong dedicated the award to the marginalised and socially excluded people in Africa, especially persons with disabilities.

He said, “this award will undoubtedly strengthen and motivate me and my team to be more committed in improving the socio-economic lives of people with disabilities at the grassroots to take charge of their lives and to achieve their true potentials”.
