||OUR regular contributor from Cardif, Wales, Mr Pierrot Ngadi has been awarded by the Congolese Merit Award with the “Hard Work Award” for his role and service to the community over the years. In a citation Mr Ngadi was praised for initiating different projects within the Congolese community among others.
In his acceptance speech, Mr. Ngadi said “Nothing is more important to me than working hard to be a good human being. To be acknowledged as the first to receive this award is beyond my expression tonight. I am an optimistic person and committed to achieve what I have started. As Winston Churchill said” A pessimist sees the difficulty in every opportunity, an optimist sees opportunity in any difficulty”.
I appreciate the opportunity to be among those awarded tonight, the opportunity to be part of rebuilding the Congolese community in Europe, and the opportunity to help my country the Democratic Republic of Congo.
Mr. Ngadi also thanked his wife Jeanine Kitambala and his children who have been so supportive of his hard work. He also thanked his best friend Patrick Kumbi and his wife Viaianne for their support.
