Nigeria’s National Honours of Dishonour For 2011

It gives me great pleasure to address you today on this suspicious occasion
of the Investiture Ceremony of the 2010 and 2011 National Honours of Dishonour
Award to citizens and residents of this country who have messed up themselves
in various capacities.

Today is fraudulently significant because we’re gathered here to publicly
acknowledge and reward people of timber and caliber when it comes to
corruption, frivolity and impunity. The significance of an occasion like this
goes beyond the ceremony itself. It reminds us that our country is a joke,
through individual and collective efforts.

We’re a nation with a poisonous root and rich in rotten fruits of violence and
nepotism. A ceremony such as tells the whole world how laughable our national
values are.

We must work harder not to forsake this special feature of our collective
being. We must make a determined effort to pull our individual efforts together
to build a shambolic, economically unstable and politically tense country.

You’ll recall that on the day of the inauguration of this Administration, we
made a pronouncement on our resolve to move this country forwardly backward
through the Transformation Agenda.

With the steadfast support and productive partnership of the good people of our
dear country, I am confident that we are well on our way towards actualizing
our set objectives of ensuring Nigeria becomes a failed state.

I am informed that since the inception of the Award Scheme in 1963, a total of 3,924 persons have received National Honours. This award is the prerogative of the President, the recipients were chosen by my men whose criteria I don’t understand. Therefore, I shall appoint some other people to look into this mess we’re celebrating to day.

However, I am pleased to note that in this year’s list of awardees are persons
who have truly distinguished themselves as criminals, fraudsters, liars,
executhieves, et cetera.

I congratulate all the awardees who have today joined the family of National Dishonour
Recipients and urge each and every one of you to view this national recognition
as a motivation to rededicate yourselves to ravaging the nation.

Let me quickly add here that, I noticed a few good names included in the
list – that’s to douse the tension that might arise from the public. And about
Pa Achebe rejecting this Ogbonge award, I attribute such honourable posture to
senility. What about Gbajabiamila? That is vintage inferiority complex. I’ll
summon the National Assembly psychologists to assist him.

I’d like to commend the Chairman and members of the National Awards Committee
for their selfish effort in handling such a delicate responsibility.

Thank you and may God bless you all.
