A citation signed by Brad Raffensperger, Secretary of State-State of Georgia stated: “May this outstanding Citizen be afforded every courtesy as a Goodwill Ambassador from Georgia in his travels to other States to nations beyond the borders of the USA, or wherever he may hereafter travel or reside. Thank you for your service to our state”.
On the part of Trinity International University, Georgia, its citation read: “Trinity hereby confers upon Emmanuel Bortey Borketey the degree of Doctor of Philosophy honoris causa community leadership and entrepreneurship with all the rights and privileges thereunto appertaining in witness thereof.

The Keys to the State of Georgia symbolise a lifetime of commitment to building a stronger nation through philosophy and community service.
In a post-event interview, Dr Bortey Borketey said: “This is an indication that hard work pays; and when you are diligent in what you do, you will be rewarded duly.
“This will certainly urge us to do more. Indeed, this wouldn’t have been possible without my hardworking staff. I dedicate this prestigious honour to all who have contributed in diverse ways to our success story. I am indeed grateful to the organisers for this recognition.”
