Conferring the awards on Monday, Dr Divine Gabriel Brefo, the President and Vice Chancellor of Peristrofi Masters Theology International described the awardees as as distinctive leaders with proven track record, dignity and self-discipline. He said these leaders are without “questionable” character in their area of success and achievement.
He stated that Mrs. Rawlings’ desire to see the emancipation of women at all levels of development and her contribution to socio-economic development has earned her the awards.
“You played a crucial role in the adoption of the “Intestate Succession Law,” which was applicable to the survivor of anyone dying without a will.”
