Gbajabiamila says Govs’ wives do not deserve National Honour

Majority Leader of the House of Representatives, Hon Femi Gbajabiamila has spoken against the conferment of national honours on wives of state governors.


Gbajabiamila, who spoke against the backdrop of a bill to subject national award nominees to Senate confirmation on Thursday at plenary session in the House, condemned the current situation where people who made no contribution to uplift the country are conferred with national honours.

Gbajabiamila canvassed that the yardstick for national award should be excellence, adding that the present standard used bordered on absurd.

He advocated that people from all walks of life, who have contributed one way or the other to the upliftment of the country should be given the honour.

His word, “Today in Nigeria the award is given to people, including those who have brought discredit to the country.

“…This should include people who brought Nigeria to the map of fame; we have taxi drivers who merit it, it must not be a lawmaker and not a situation where wives of governors are given the award.’’
