Ex Mr. Nigeria, Emmanuel Ikubese appointed as UN MDGs Ambassador
He was bound to hit the sky when he emerged Mr. Nigeria years back. Today that sky seems to be his starting point, as Emmanuel Ikubese has just been appointed United Nation’s Millennium Development Goals Ambassador, a global network of formal and non-formal educators, as well as educational institutions and agencies that are committed to the realization of education for all people from childhood to adulthood.
Emmanuel Ikubese was honored for contribution and overall development of humanity, based on selfless services, creativity and compassion towards human development.
Speaking at the event marking the appointment, Ikubese who was given a customised vehicle plate number, an international identification card and an honorary plaque said it was an honour for him to be given such as great responsibility as a young man. Emmanuel added that the MDGs were some of the things he studied as an International Relations student in University, and being appointed as the MDGs ambassador means a whole lot to him. His new designation as a UN Ambassador for Global Educators for all Initiatives now confers on him many less-privilege, which he sums up in his own words as being committed to the ideals of the organization.
