Story by Economic Confidential

The Federal government of Nigeria has released the list of 2010 and 2011 National Honours Award recipients. The Economic Confidential has discovered that over 80% of the awardees came from the public sector as either public officers or political appointees.

Less than 15% of the recipients are actually from the private sector including the tradition rulers, religious leaders and artists whose individual contributions were considered for the awards.

The highest award of Grand Commander of the Niger (GCON) goes to Aliko Dangote of Dangote Group of companies while the category for Commander of the Federal Republic goes to mostly retired and current service chiefs, heads of service and top ranking traditional rulers. The title of Commander of the Order of the Niger (CON) has some former/ current governors and ministers as beneficiaries.

Some of the categories of the awards including Order of the Federal Republic (OFR), Order of the Niger (OON), Member of the Federal Republic (MFR) and Member of the Niger (MON) were actually bestowed on the recipients based on their official designations in the service.

  1. Indeed our leaders in Nigeria are still sleeping as this not what we need in the land, GEJ wake up to our little needs Electricity, Employment etc, remember you would not live for ever.

  2. I commend Federal Government for showing appreciation to distinguished sons and daughters of the soil to motivate them to do more but some of them dont deserve it at all. People in corrupt practices should not be given National Award. It make a mockery of the Award. It is high time in this country that we refuse to cekebrate frivolities. National Award should be bestowed only on men of sterling qualities and high moral standard and not the other way round. The selection committee should not collect bribe to infuse some names into the lists. Federal Government should be bold enough to reject some names in the next edition. Serving politicians and uniform men should not flood the list.

  3. na wao! Tout r nw given award in naija. Chinedu Ogah of Ebonyi state dnt even deserve a village honour talk of a national honour. Wondas shal neva end

  4. It is a pissmer pissmer and regretably that some awardees does’t deserve such award, Nigerians let us use our resources to do something meaningful. I luv u prof achebe!


  6. Wat of some prestigious mad men on d streets, as it is they are even more deserving of d awards than most of d awardee. Anyway Prof Achebe U keep showing them that you are civilized and Educated, pls keep showing us d young ones the way things ougth 2 be done.
