I Go Dye dedicates Global Peace Advocate Award to EndSARS victims
Ace comedian and social activist, Francis Agoda a.k.a I Go Dye has added another feather to his swelling cap of honours as he was recently bestowed with the United Nations Eminent Global Peace Advocate Appointment and Award which he immediately dedicated to the victims of the “EndSars” protests and the judicial panel members.
As part of the presentation of the award, the comedian was also given an international identification card with UN-V1712 with the inscription “Category Global Diplomat”
In a letter made available to the media, I Go Dye said, “I wholeheartedly dedicate this United Nations Eminent Global Peace Advocate Appointment And Award bestowed on me to the victims of the Endsars protest and the judiciary panel that gave some insights and recommendations on how to curb the future occurrence of such actions. Our pains are widened by the gap of poverty, unemployment and injustice. I appeal to the government to look into the judicial panel’s recommendation and seek a better means to reward Nigerians with economic policies that will cushion the effect of poverty that’s motivating the criminal tendency across the nation.”
He continues, “Declaring any group as terrorists, is not enough to stop crime, the government must create a secured environment especially with special attention on power generation for investors so that our youths can get employment. No matter how much is spent on war, or purchasing military equipment, none can stop the frustrated man from embracing violence, as a means of survival. When we fail to promote peace, by our simple failure to care for the less-privileged and reduce the poverty index in our country, crime will certainly increase.”
I Go Dye thanked the International Association of World Peace Advocates for the honour bestowed on him and promised to do more in promoting peace and sustaining development
“As a Global Diplomat we will continue to advocate for peace and sustainable development, because the world is built on our shoulders, only peace and love can sustain our existence. I am indeed grateful to God Almighty, for him alone takes all the glory.”
