Praia, Oct 26 (Inforpress) – The former Prime Minister, José Maria Neves, is the Career Award winner, which will be delivered to him during the 4th edition of the Lusophony Awards Gala, which takes place this Saturday, in Portugal.
According to the organization of the event, the awarding of this prize to José Maria Neves is an “act of recognition for the whole path of merit, advanced citizenship and respect for the citizens of Cabo Verde, Portuguese-speaking countries and the global world”.
Inforpress tried to hear José Maria Neves about the award, but without success. However, in a short message on his official Facebook page, he just said that he feels “honored”.
The Lusophony Awards Gala administration justifies this distinction as the “continued teaching, of the highest citizenship, developed by José Maria Neves, both in the performance of the functions of Prime Minister of Cabo Verde, and in the performance of his other relevant and high public missions, as well as active and committed citizens of the world”.
