Chadian head of state Idriss Deby has honoured his compatriot Moussa Faki Mahamat who is the President of the African Union Commission.

According to a decree on Wednesday, the honorific distinction now gives the title of ambassador to Mahamat.

The current head of the AUC had occupied the post of Prime Minister (2003-2005) in his country before being appointed Foreign Affairs minister.

He held the position for ten years after which he was elected chair of the AU Commission in 2017.
