    President Buhari does not worthy of the award. This is a fraud. Absolute daylight fraud. Somebody who is not obeying court order and who does not have respect for the rule of law is being given an award? What a shame!

  • Okokondem

    Look no further for reasons why we live in a regressive society. By its nature the responsibility of a newspaper is to report and inform in the most transparent way possible. Instead, some or even most Nigerian newspapers indulge in pandering. What a shame.

    What was Dogara awarded for?
