Buhari congratulates first African to win AFS Award, Noel Alumona.

President Muhammadu Buhari has congratulated Noel Ifeanyi Alumona for winning the 2022 AFS Award for Young Global Citizens.

The Nigerian, studying Special Education in Vanderbilt University, United States, became the first African to win the prize since inception in 1914.

The award was presented to the student during the International Youth Day organized by the United Nations Global Communications Department, the AFS Intercultural Programs and The Youth Assembly.

Buhari hailed Alumona for kindness and sacrificial spirit, noting that he already established foundations to cater for the needs of the physically challenged, vulnerable and less privileged.

The Nigerian leader extols his outstanding character and dedication to helping others, particularly for attracting global spotlight to his fatherland.

He recognized the awardee’s vigorous campaign to end violence against women and girls through proper orientation of boys on responsible behaviour.

“The President prays that the Almighty God will continue to lead, guide and grant Alumona wisdom to serve his country and humanity”, a statement by spokesman Femi Adesina reads.

Alumona is an Obama Foundation Fellow, United States Institute of Peace Fellow, and United Nations Youth Assembly Delegate.
