Senator representing Kogi West, Dino Melaye has faulted the post humous award given to Late MKO Abiola by President Muhammadu Buhari.

Citing section 43 subsection 2 of the national honours Act, Melaye noted that though the award was in line with democratic principles, it contravenes the provisions of the Act on post humous awards

In his remarks, the President of the senate urged the lawmakers to see the declaration as a recognition of the contributions and sacrifices made by late MKO Abiola.
