The Rivers State Governor, Hon. Rotimi Amaechi, has been honoured with the United Nations diplomatic passport for his contributions to human capital development as an ambassador of the UN.
Amaechi, who was earlier honoured with an award by the UN for his development of the education sector, was honoured with a UN diplomatic passport to further appreciate his genuine channeling of resources to the development of human race.
Amaechi had received the award of the Associated Fellowship of the UN Institute for Training and Research in Geneva, Switzerland.
The award, which was specifically for his contributions to the Education Sector, has placed Rivers State as the best state in Nigeria with 21st century education facility.
The award, in addition to the diplomatic passport, entitles Amaechi to a UN certificate that confers immunity on him whenever on any UN assignment.
