55 Years Later... GEJ Honors Nigerian Flag Designer, Puts Him On Lifetime Salary
Does anyone remember the man who designed the Nigerian flag, 55 years ago? I'm sure most people don't even know his name. Hmm
Nigerian flag designer, Pa Taiwo Akinkunmi was decorated as an Officer of the Order of Federal Republic, OFR, by President Goodluck Jonathan, on Monday, September 29, 2014.
Not only was he given an award 55 years after designing our Green White Green flag, he was also placed on lifetime salary which much be as much as what any Senior Special Advisers earns.
Congrats Pa Akinkunmi, your labor was not in vain.
