According to the organizer of the project Mr. Rashid Sulub the personalities awarded was as per the votes they received from members of the public without coercion or prompting from any quarters during the selection process by 12 individuals who prompted the public in all the regions of the country where contributions were collated with the online ones in a period of eight months.

This is the first time in the country's history for individuals with distinguished contribution to national development in one area or another to be recognized and Honoured.
Meanwhile it is hoped that the caution to the local media to act professionally and ethically by president Silanyo will be taken seriously thus acted upon especially by the privately owned media both print and electronic that seems to have gone berserk in the recent past, with some newspapers and websites going as far as publishing articles that are not only defamatory and character assassinating but completely anti-the very nationhood of Somaliland as well.
