Buhari Fails To Award National Honours In 2 Years
The current administration is already two years old and it seems no Nigerian is deemed fit to be conferred with a national honour.
President Muhammadu Buhari has failed to confer national honours on any individual since his inception of office in 2015 contrary to the usual practice of holding the investiture every year.
The President, who assumed office on May 29, 2015, failed to host the investiture in 2015 and 2016.
With only three working days left this year, there are no indications that it can hold in 2017.
The national award, which is instituted annually, has as its objective to recognise and honour citizens and friends of Nigeria who have distinguished themselves in their various endeavours and contributed immensely to the development of the nation.
It is also intended to serve as motivation for all Nigerians to emulate the exemplary conduct and services of those being honoured.
The last time the conferment of the awards took place was on September 29, 2014 when former President Goodluck Jonathan conferred different categories of national honours on 313 persons.
