Why I won’t reject national honour – Comedian, AY

Comedian Ayo Makun, popularly called AY, has disclosed that he will not be rejecting the national honour conferred on him by the immediate past president, Muhammadu Buhari despite pleas from fans.

The enterpreneur, who expressed gratitude for the honour wrote on his social media pages earlier was listed in the Member of the Order of the Federal Republic (MFR) cadre.

“I am indeed happy to be listed amongst individuals adding value to the country in all spheres of human endeavour. Not everyone gets to enjoy that special grace that brings me nothing short of consistent favour against all odds. At this point permit me to reintroduce myself, I am Dr Richard Ayodeji Makun (MFR)” He wrote.

Reacting to pressure from fans to dissociate himself from the award, the TV show host asserted, “Those of you shaming or asking me to reject ‘A National Honour’ are clearly missing a vital point. Our country is bigger and more important than any president or political party awarding it. A national honour is the highest recognition anyone can get for his or her contributions.

He added: “My allegiance is to a country where I have contributed my own quota, and I am more than happy to be rewarded by the same nation.”

Actor, Kunle Afolayan and David ‘Davido’ Adeleke also made the list.
