The honorees include two businessmen, Aliko Dangote, president of the Dangote Group, and Abdulsamad Rabi’u, president of the BUA Group, as well as the governors of Jigawa and Zamfara states, Badaru Abubakar and Bello Matawalle.

The Senior Special Assistant (Household and Domestic Affairs) to the President, Sarki Abba, and the State Chief of Protocol, Lawal Kazaure, were recognized from the Presidency.

Six Nigerians have received the highest civilian honors in the Niger Republic, according to a statement from Garba Shehu, Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity.

The award ceremony was held in 1960 to commemorate the country’s independence from France. Since 1975, the day has been known as “tree planting day” because trees are planted all over the country to help combat desertification.
