Njai, who was elected onto office as an independent candidate, received the award in view of his pragmatic and sound and focused-decision making approach.

In an interview with The Point, Njai said that it is a great honor to receive a special African iconic award, further thanking all of the people, who believed in him and voted for him during the National Assembly Election.

"I am expressing my heartfelt delight to all those who enabled me to achieve this goal. I consider myself lucky to have received this award from this youth network who are changing lives by the day. I hope to continue doing my best in the future to stand for young people and Africa as whole."
