A statement signed by the International Spokesman of the association Amb. Emmanuel Nkweke, said the celebration is in honour of His Excellency Babajide Sanwo-Olu, the Governor of Lagos state, in view of the success of his first term in office and for the way he handled Covid-19 pandemic and EndSARS agitation in Lagos.

The statement also noted that his administration has put Lagos on international map as a state with viable economic growth and sustainable development. 

He said it is for these reasons that the governor is billed for the award of the International Eminent Peace Ambassador with derivative benefits.

“The projects and programmes executed under the Leadership of Hon. Abdullahi Garba Ramat are reflective to the realities of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals which has made us proud to bestow on him the twin awards,” he said. 2022 PEACE MESSAGE
SECRETARY-GENERAL’S MESSAGE FOR THE INTERNATIONAL DAY OF PEACE New York, 21 September 2022 Peace is a noble and necessary pursuit, and the only practical pathway to a better, fairer world for all people.

Yet in too many places, in too many contexts, we are failing the cause of peace. The theme of this year’s International Day of Peace — “End Racism, Build Peace” — reminds us of the many ways racism poisons people’s hearts and minds and erodes the peace we all seek. 

⁷ Racism robs people of their rights and dignity. It inflames inequalities and mistrust. 

And it pushes people apart, at a time when we should be coming together, as one human family, to repair our fractured world.
Instead of fighting each other, we should be working to defeat our true enemies: racism, poverty, inequality, conflict, the climate crisis and the COVID-19 pandemic.

We should tear down structures that sustain racism, and lift up human rights movements everywhere. And we should drown out the vicious voices of hate speech with a united and sustained cry for truth, understanding and mutual respect.
On this important day, a time to observe 24 hours of non-violence and cease-fire, we renew our call for all people to do more than lay down their weapons. 

We call on them to re-affirm the bonds of solidarity we share as human beings and get down to the business of building a better, more peaceful world.
