“All award recipients are to send copies of their citations/resumes to the secretary, National Honours Awards Committee, Federal Ministry of Special Duties and Inter-Governmental Affairs (FMSDIGA) on or before June 9,” said the circular.

It added, “The soft copies should be sent to the following e-mail addresses: [email protected], [email protected] in the following format:
A. biodata, title, surname, other names, gender, phone no, email, state of origin, address.
B. citation and biography (not more than 500 words):, early life, educational qualifications, career/achievements, personal life hobbies etc.): and
C. passport photograph.”
