Former Liberian president Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, receives the prestigious World’s richest individual prize, the Mo Ibrahim Foundation Prize Award which is usually given to a democratically-elected African leader who has demonstrated exceptional leadership, served their mandated terms and left office within the previous three years.

Describing herself as an imperfect leader when she accepted the award, the 79-year-old leader said“As the first woman to receive this Mo Ibrahim Foundation Prize award, it is my hope that women and girls across the continent are inspired to break down barriers,” said the 79-year-old who left office earlier this year.“Where there is a first, there will be a second.”
