Humour merchant, Francis Agoda, popularly known as I Go Dye, has been honoured by United Nations as one of its Ambassadors.  The successful comedian is now the international body's Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) Ambassador. I Go Dye is now among other UN MDGs Ambassadors around the world working to realise the objectives of the United Nations.

The honour is in recognition of the impact I Go Dye has on society through comedy. He was given the mandate to continue to facilitate the realisation of the United Nations MDGs.

I Go Dye, Daily Independent gathered, is involved in philanthropic and humanitarian projects. He is also an advocate of non-violence approach to issues among youths in Africa, inspiring them to seek good leadership and eradication of poverty.

Speaking on the development, I Go Dye said, 'I feel honoured by this, but it will be more gratifying to me, when I will see our leaders create more opportunities for the youths and making effort to gainfully employ them. As at today, millions of Africans are suffering and faced with uncertainty. The future seems vague and there is no hope in sight.

'Until this personal desire for a better Africa is achieved, my heart knows no profound happiness because someone is still sleeping without a meal.'

He added, 'But this recognition shows that my work is not in vain. I thank God for giving me this talent that is inspiring others and also to my fans all over the world, who have been supporting me with their prayers and love. Without you, all these achievements won't have been possible. May God bless you all.'

The honour came with a customized vehicle number plate: MDG AMB 7K, an international identification card and an honorary plaque.
