An online news blog, News Nugget described MLK Awards presented to President Muhammadu Buhari as fake, the faceless author also alleged that the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Foreign Affairs and Diaspora, Hon Abike Dabiri-Erewa and a certain Ghana-based African-American, Erika Faye Bennet, who was introduced as Ambassador Erika Bennet in Abuja during the event. scammed the President.
To put the record straight, The First Black History Month National Black Excellence and Exceptional African Leadership Award 2018, presented to President Muhammadu Buhari by the Martin Luther King Jr family is not fake and the story in circulation is false and misleading.
Also Hon Abike Dabiri-Erewa was never a party to the delegation that presented the award to President Buhari.
it is of worthy note that Naomi Barbara King is the head of the family and she takes decisions for the family
The faceless author was ignorant as he linked the iconic 86 year old Barbara with Erica Bennet
The two were on different delegations and only met in Abuja and were both delighted to meet
The trip was solely privately funded
Its a shame that some unpatriotic people don’t want to see anything good in President Muhammadu Buhari who was honoured for his anti corruption fight
In fact, the delegation enjoyed their trip to Nigeria they extended their stay as they enjoyed the country’s warmth culture
They are thrilled to have visited Nigeria and met and honored President Buhari , a week before the 50th anniversary of MLK
There is no doubt that the two women remain icons, Erica Bennet is the President of the Diaspora Africa Forum, the first of such mission to be recognised by the African Union, AU while Naomi Barbara king is the respectable matriarch of the Martin Luther King, MLK family, wife of the late AD king
The fake story and its fake author should be discountenanced as some just don’t want to see anything good in President Buhari.
