KINGS’s CENTER DENIES GIVING PRESIDENT BUHARI AN AWARD.

In relation to an award conferred on President Muhammadu Buhari in Abuja by purported family members of late African American civil rights leader Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., The King Center has issued a statement denying that the award was issued by them or the children of Martin Luther King Jr.

In a tweet by the official Twitter handle of The King Center, it read: “The award given to President Buhari of Nigeria was not given by The King Center, at the request of The King Center or by the children of #MLK and #CorettaScottKing. @MrFixNigeria”

Daily Sun reported that the award was given to president Buhari by members of Dr. king’s family but none was a direct descendant of the king.
