The Convener for the JSA-IMD Prize 2020, Ethel Adjorlolo Marfo, said the men were carefully selected for possessing values worth emulating by young males.
“I am glad to say that these are not just men of Integrity whose words you can trust. They are hardworking and passionate about what they do and have been great mentors to not just the young boys I coach but also role models to many young ones “.
Ethel Marfo, also used the occasion to charge men to make conscious efforts in mentoring young boys to become responsible future men and leaders.

Touching on ending gender based violence, the UNFPA Country Director, Niyi Ojuolape said men and women alike needed to be educated to play their respective roles.
