Globacom Chairman and business mogul, Otunba Mike Adenuga will soon become the second businessman to bag the GCON award, the 2nd highest national honour in the country. The quiet business man leads 148 other award recipients, including serving government officials who have been listed for National awards on September 17.
Other notable recipients of the award include the Inspector General of Police, M.D. Abubakar (CFR), Esama of Benin, Chief Gabriel Igbinedion (CON), Tony Elumelu (CON) and Dr. Cosmos Maduka (CON)
The list also includes serving politicians and party chieftains.
Africa's richest man, Aliko Dangote received the GCON award last year.
But then,my question is this: is it right for serving politicians and party chieftains to receive national awards?
