The conferment of the award took place at the Presidential Palace of the Malawian Government in Lilongwe, at a short ceremony attended by high profile dignitaries.

In her speech, the President of YDUA, Louisa Atta-Agyemang indicated the union’s admiration for President Chakwera’s governance over a very short period. She stated that the award was in recognition of the Malawian government’s initiative such as the Affordable Input Programme, which is geared towards ensuring food security.

“Considering the state of perennial food insecurity that plagues a lot of countries on the continent especially Malawi, your tremendous impact over this short period of your office through the introduction of the Affordable Input Program has ensured over 4.3 million smallholder farmers have access to very essential farming inputs,” she noted.
