Shortly after receiving his prize, Mr Azure expressed appreciation to God and said, ”God has made me to forget the hardships in my father’s house. My secret is God and very grateful to my father”.

 “I encourage all parents that poverty is not an excuse not to educate your children”, he said and referred to the fact that, though his father is a poor night watchman, he made sacrifices for his education.

Azure has wowed the nation recently with his quality reporting and exciting thought provoking articles, notably ‘President Mills’ last letter to Rawlings’.
