Nigeria: Buhari Receives Fake Martin Luther King's Award

The news was circulated by Lauretta Onochie, President Muhammadu Buhari’s personal assistant on Social Media.

“Dr Mrs Naomi Barbara King led other members of the African-American body to the conferment.

“The Award was presented to him in Abuja by the Family of Martin Luther King led by Luther’s Wife. Martin Luther King’s Wife said PMB won this award because of America’s recognition of his Anti Corruption war, urging him not to be deterred!”

Two days after this purported award was given, The King Center, the body responsible for given the Martin Luther awards has come out to dissociate itself from the award.

In a tweet posted on the 28th of march, the center said ” The award given to President Buhari of Nigeria was not given by The King Center, at the request of The King Center or by the children of #MLK”.

News emerging now suggests that the award was arranged by Abike Dabiri-Erewa, the senior special assistant to President Buhari on foreign affairs and diaspora with a distant relative of the King’s family.
