The Vice President of Ghana, H.E Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia was one of the biggest winners at the 2022 Africa Public Sector Conference and Awards (APSCA) as he was honoured with the ‘Public Sector Transformation Leader Award’.

Powered by InstinctWave, the glamourous awards gala was held on Friday, May 13, 2022, after a successful conference at the Kempinski Hotel in Accra the previous day on the theme; “Repositioning Africa's public sector for Sustainable Development”.

Delivering an address at the awards gala, Mr. Akin Naphtal who is the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) for InstinctWave underscored the vital role of the public sector, stressing its importance to drive the private sector which must not be overlooked.

He said it is why his outfit put together the 2022 Africa Public Sector Conference and Awards to give recognition to deserving public sector players.

“Can the private sector survive without effective policy, without regulator process? Most of the successes that the private sector are declaring today come at the back of the government institution.

“We believe with your support this event will grow. Tonight is about rewarding those that have effectively served the policies to the private and the corporate institutions. We are giving them motivation that we are here to give you the applause if you are doing well,” Mr. Akin Naphtal shared.
