An aspiring House of Representatives member for Asa/Ilorin West Federal Constituency, Alhaji Mohammed Ajia Ibrahim, has faulted the National Honour Awards list, as it regards awardees from Kwara State.
According to him, if anybody in Kwara is deserving of a national honour, it should first be Sen. Abubakar Bukola Saraki, former Senate President and two-term Governor of the state.
Ajia gave his opinion in a statement signed and released to journalists in Ilorin by his Media Team.
He described the “omission” as politics taken too far, considering his contribution and commitment to the growth and development of the country while he held sway as the head of the legislative arm of Government.
He, however, congratulated the 11 indigenes of Kwara State who made the list of Presidential awards among the 447 people that received different national awards.
