After years of neglect of the designer of the Nigerian Flag, Mr Taiwo Akinkunmi came to a dramatic end yesterday as President Goodluck Jonathan, while conferring him with a national honour award, also announced his appointment as a Special Assistant, with a salary for life. This was the highlight of the ceremony which saw the conferrment of national honours on more than three hundred Nigerians from all walks of life. Akinkunmi, who is 77 years old also received the National Honours Award of Officer of the Order of the Federal Republic (OFR).
Really happy for this man. He’s finally got what he deserved.
