Award: PDP Aspirant Threatens Legal Action Against PMB

A Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) governorship aspirant in Adamawa State, Dr Umar Ardo, has threatened legal action if President Muhammadu Buhari confers the national awards on Late Chief MKO Abiola, Ambassador Babagana Kingibe and Chief Gani Fawehinmi on Tuesday without convening a meeting of the National Council of State to deliberate and advise him as required by the constitution. He maintained that the advise of the council of state on the matter is pursuant to its powers as contained in section 6(a)(iii) of Part 1 to the Third Schedule of the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria 1999 (as amended). Ardo, who said he has no objection to conferring such national honours on Abiola and Fawehinmi, noting that they richly deserve such awards and much more, however explained that the right thing should be done rightly. Stressing that investiture ceremony as planned amounts to flagrant illegality, Ardo disclosed  that he contacted a former president, who is a serving member of the council over the matter and was told that the issue had not at any time been raised in any of the meetings of the council of state. He said, “Pursuant to the powers of the Council of State in section 6(a)(iii)  of Part 1 to the Third Schedule of the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria 1999 (as amended) to advise the president on the matter of awarding National Honours, I call on President Mohammadu Buhari to immediately convene a meeting of the National Council of State to deliberate and advise him on his decision to award National Honours to the Late Chief MKO Abiola, Ambassador Babagana Kingibe and Chief Gani Fawehinmi before performing the planned investiture ceremony on Tuesday. This is simply to comply with due process of law.
