President Muhammadu Buhari has conferred the National Honour of Commander of the Niger on Festus Keyamo SAN, the immediate Hon. Minister of State for Labour and Employment.
The Senior Advocate of Nigeria in a press statement he issued today, Sunday 28, 2023, and sent to Midwest Herald, thanked President Buhari for the gesture.
The text reads: “I was very delighted to wake up this morning to the news of the conferment on my humble self of one of the highest National Honours of Commander of the Order of the Niger (CON) (No. 15 on the list).
“I was conferred along with other deserving and distinguished Nigerians.
“I had no single inkling this was coming and for this, I am grateful to the President and Commander in Chief of the Armed Forces, President Muhammadu Buhari, GCFR.
“His style is to give honours and privileges to those deserving of them and not those who lobby for them.”
Keyamo then prayed to God to honour Buhari in return.
“Thank you, Mr. President and may God Almighty continue to honour you even as you have honoured others.”
