The President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), is set to confer National Honours Award on some outstanding Nigerians as a reward for their hard work and selfless service to the development and growth of their local communities and nation at large.
In a letter signed by the Minister of Special Duties and Inter-governmental Affairs, Senator George Akume, all listed recipients have been invited to the ceremony set to take place on Tuesday, October 11, 2022, at the international conference Centre in Abuja.
Shortlisted among the recipients for this honourary rank of Officer of the Order of the Niger award is the founder and Chief Executive Officer of Lekki Gardens Estate, Dr. Richard Nyong.
The letter, which is to serve as a valid means of identification, will be required of all award recipients. Recipients are also expected to forward a one-page citation and current passport photograph to the office of the minister before the date of this year’s investiture.
