In an unprecedented event, Ambassador Dr. Amina Smaila, Nigeria’s Consul-General in Atlanta, Georgia, has been honored by both the Senate and House of Representatives of the State of Georgia. This marks the first time in the 247-year history of these legislative bodies that a Nigerian ambassador has received such recognition.

During a special session, Dr. Smaila was invited into the hallowed halls of the Georgian legislature, where she was celebrated for her outstanding service and contributions. The honors bestowed upon her included an honorary citizenship certificate and a resolution commemorating International Diaspora Day, highlighting her significant impact.

Additionally, Dr. Smaila has been awarded the Phoenix Award, the highest accolade from the Mayor of Atlanta, and received the golden key to the city of Tulsa, Oklahoma. In a further tribute to her influence and the strong ties she has fostered, the House of Representatives has unanimously established “Nigerians Day” in the state of Georgia, with a resolution urging the Governor to proclaim this day annually.

The ceremonies were also marked by special gestures from both the United States and Nigerian armed forces, who presented flags to Dr. Smaila, a gesture typically reserved for the most solemn occasions. This underscored the profound respect and esteem she holds on the international stage.

These celebrations not only honor Dr. Smaila’s individual achievements but also underscore the vibrant diversity and diplomacy that she represents. The accolades serve as a testament to her exemplary role in enhancing the relationships between Nigeria and the international community, particularly in the United States.
