Ilorin’s Grand Mufti, Onikijipa, Set to Receive OON Award

On October 11, 2022, President Muhammadu Buhari GCFR will bestow the Order of the Niger (OON) onto Sheikh Sulyman Faruq Onikijipa (Al Miskin billahi), an Ilorin-born Islamic scholar who serves as the Grand Mufti of the Ilorin Emirate.

A national accolade known as the OON Award is given to people who have made significant contributions to the country’s services.

Every year, Nigerians and allies of the country are given a collection of orders and decorations known as the Nigerian National Honours. During the First Nigerian Republic, they were established by the National Honors Act No. 5 of 1964 to recognize Nigerians who have contributed to the good of the country.

These honors are different from the ones that are a part of the nation’s historic chieftaincy system, which is a distinct (but also recognized by law) organization. The greatest honors or medals a citizen can earn from his or her country for service to the country are known as national honors.
