    Those given national honors should be men and women of integrity and should be nationally spread,but what I see is a different ball game.why so many names from a section of the country who claim to be majority is very visible than other sections. We must stand up for truth.there are some names that should’nt have been there

    I wish to congratulate the receivers of this year’s national honours award.You have worked selflessly for the country.i wish to see the Name of Chief Innocent Chukwuma CEO Innoson Technical Company and my name in the next honour’s list.

    i like what the president that if they are found wantin in the nearest future their esteemed prestige will be shattered by withdrawing their awards so they have alot on their heads not just hands.
    but many ought to be given the award o don’t know the kind of segregation but maybe theirs is for another time.

    The most greatest shame is honouring Benue State Governor Gabriel Suswam his honour is for what? What have he commisioned since his two term in office five years and some month? Except the pig he bought for his citizens, this is award for criminals

    This list is compired by the same criminal and is only for their seniors no just a man is enlisted such a shame how can you tell the public that over 6million is over paid to one person?

  7. icent Reply

    it is barbaric and un reasonable that criminals are awarded a national honor….who are they fooling but i believe  God of a common man will catch up wit them very soon.

  8. paul Reply

    No award 4 common man on the street…
    na wa o! Why do we still award those politicians after siphoning&looting our money? After enriching themselves in their various offices? I could recollect some guys that lose their lives after saving some nigerians during the flood…nothing for them or their families.
    Pls stop awarding the looters!
