Ayobámidélé Ojitelégàn Momodu, a veteran Nigerian writer and publisher, has been granted honorary citizenship of Georgia in the United States of America.
Dele Momodu took to Instagram to share a photo of the certificate, which described him as an outstanding citizen who will be treated with the utmost respect as a Goodwill Ambassador from Georgia in his travels to other states and nations beyond the borders of the United States of America, or wherever he may after that travel or reside.
In his post, he expressed gratitude to the state for the lovely gift. Though I was unable to accept this distinction in Atlanta, Georgia, physically, he added, “I most genuinely appreciate the thoughtfulness and nice intentions behind it.”
Honorary citizenship is a designation granted by a city or other authority to a foreign or native individual deemed exceptionally honorable or otherwise deserving of the honor. On social media, congratulations have flooded in from family, friends, coworkers, and fans.
Congratulations from NewsGist24. More success as you continue to be an excellent representative of our nation.

Dele Momodu’s biographical details
Chief Dele Momodu (born Aybámidélé báym Ojtelégàn jàn Momodu on May 16, 1960) is a Nigerian businessman, motivational speaker, and journalist/publisher. He is the CEO and publisher of Ovation International, a magazine that has provided individuals all around the world, mainly in Africa, exposure.
He formally started Ovation TV in 2015, followed by The Boss, an online newspaper. Dele Momodu has garnered hundreds of prizes and honours for his contributions to business, politics, literature, music, and fashion. He writes a weekly piece called “Pendulum,” which appears on the back page of Thisday every Saturday. The articles are acclaimed for spotlighting Nigerian concerns and debating popular subjects, current events, and influential persons in a polemic/critical tone.
The last of three siblings, whose name means “my gladness had followed me home,” He lost his father when he was 13 and had to rely on his mother and relatives for assistance.
Dele Momodu was taught not to despair even when situations were rough by his late mother, who died on May 18, 2007. This was demonstrated by her unwavering support for him, even after others had written him off. She had offered him a third opportunity to pass his WAEC (senior secondary exams). Despite his mother’s minor trade income and having two elder children to care for, Dr. OlaDele B. Ajayi and Debbie Ajayi, she worked hard to support her family. In Dele Momodu’s words, “she didn’t complain.”
