MARTIN-LUTHER KING CENTRE DISTANCES SELF FROM ‘LEADERSHIP AWARD’ TO BUHARI
The Martin Luther King Jr Centre has distanced itself from a leadership and anti-corruption award which was presented to President Buhari.
Although the group that presented the award is said to be associated with Martin Luther King.
According to a statement released, the award had nothing to do with the Martin Luther King center but it was however presented by the matriarch of the king family (the 88 yr old surviving wife of late Rev. Alfred Daniel who worked alongside his dear brother Dr Martin Luther King Jr) & their fellow dedicated civil rights activists in her personal capacity.
The award was said to be part of the King’s family activities marking the Black History Month.
But following a barrage of requests from Nigerians on Wednesday, the King Centre, which is a memorial of the late preacher, distanced itself from the award.
