FG debunks viral list of candidates for national honours



The Federal Government on Monday described as fake the purported list of nominees for national honours circulated by some online media organisations.

 

 

Over the weekend, the media was inundated with a number of names purportedly on the list of Nigerians to be honoured with national awards.

However, the list of nominees now circulating on the internet has attracted criticism, especially for the calibre of people nominated for the awards.

However, in a statement signed by the Press Director of the Federal Ministry of Special Duties and Intergovernmental Affairs, Julie Jacobs, the government denied the list and said it would publish it in due course and in an appropriate medium.

 

The statement read, “The attention of the Federal Ministry of Special Duties and Intergovernmental Affairs has been drawn to an alleged list of nominees for national honours circulated by some online media organisations.

“While it is true that President Muhammadu Buhari, GCFR, will confer national honours on deserving Nigerians and friends of Nigeria on October 11, 2022, the authentic list of nominees is yet to be made public. The Federal Ministry of Special Duties and Intergovernmental Affairs will publish the list in due course and in an appropriate medium.

“The public is hereby urged to disregard the list in circulation as it is an attempt by overzealous reporters whose aim is to spread news even if the news is fake.
