Photos: GEJ honors Nigerian flag designer, puts him on lifetime salary

The man who designed the Nigeria flag, Pa Taiwo Akinkunmi was decorated as an Officer of the Order of the Federal Republic, OFR, by President Jonathan today September 29th, 55 years after designing the flag.

He wasn’t only given an award today, president Jonathan also said he will be placed on a lifetime salary that must be in line with what any Senior Special Advisers earns.

No other government before this government found Pa Akinkunmi worthy of a national award or a lifetime salary. So happy for him.
