How Martin Luther King Centre Disowned ‘Leadership Award’ to President Buhari

Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari of recent was conferred with an award of leadership and anti- corruption from a group said to be associated with Martin Luther King. However, the real Martin Luther King, Jr Centre has quickly dissociated itself from such a ridiculous award.

The Martin Luther King, Jr Centre frankly distanced itself from a leadership and anti-corruption award presented to the President on Tuesday.

The award was said to be part of the King’s family activities marking the Black History Month.

State House officials, including Bashir Ahmed, a media aide to the president, have touted the award as being given by the late civil rights activist’s nephew.


The nephew, identified as Isaac Newton-Farris also reportedly urged Nigerians to allow Mr. Buhari continue as Nigerian president because of his tremendous achievement.

But following a deluge of requests from Nigerians on Wednesday, the King Centre, which is a memorial of the late preacher, distanced itself from the award.

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 and #CorettaScottKing. @MrFixNigeria
