The 12th edition of the yearly awards, with the theme "Sustainable Peace and Economic Growth in Africa," is intended to highlight the significance of peace in fostering economic growth, in his opinion.

"I would like to congratulate everyone who received an honorary doctorate degree and one of the 12th Peace Achievers International Awards in 2023.

The Peace Achievers International Awards were created as a private initiative by the Peace Ambassador Agency to honor African citizens and organizations that have shown a great commitment to giving back to their communities.

"We are creating a movement that encourages peace and cohesion in Africa, involving all facets of society.

He remarked, "There has never been a better time to honor outstanding individuals like you, so that together we can create a global partnership for peace."

Amafibe said that even while many patriotic men and women had made significant contributions to the peace-building effort in Nigeria, it was crucial to recognize the "outstanding" ones.

According to NAN, Tinubu-Ojo and other Nigerians were awarded honorary doctorates in leadership and management at the event by the American Management University.

Dr. Samuel Ojong, the African Representative of the University who oversaw the ceremony, advised those who received the honor to act as worthy representatives of the institution.

In her remarks, Tinubu-Ojo expressed her joy over the honor and thanked the American Management University and the Peace Achievers International Awards organizers for the initiative and honor.
