Bill To Honour National Heroes Passes 2nd Reading


A Bill for an Act to repeal Nigerian National Heroes Register 2004 and for enactment of Nigerian National Heroes Act, passed second reading at the House of Representatives on Wednesday.

Leading debate on the Bill, Rep. Abubakar Amuda-Kannike (Kwara-APC), said when passed, it would ensure the recognition of heroes who were not only honoured but provide some form of mentoring to younger generation. He said that heroes should be admired and acknowledged for courage, outstanding achievements and noble qualities.

Amuda-Kannike said that honour should be given to individuals with positive contributions to the growth and development of the society.

According to him, Nigerians, living or dead, deserve a place of honour in the country’s national history. He listed some of them to include late Chief Alvan Ikoku, late Alhaji Abubakar Tafawa Balewa, late Mr Herbert Macaulay and late Gen. Murtala Mohammed.
