LEADERS TODAY.....Meet Captain Chris Najomo : The Aviation Czar & A Silent Philanthropist

 




By Mike Cerutti Osagie 

"The difference between ordinary and extraordinary is that little extra; for Excellence is not a skill but an attitude"

This quote by lord Jimmy Johnson best suits the reign of the man called Captain Chris Najomo who is a seasoned pilot with over thirty years of experience in the aviation industry and who has made significant contributions to the Nigerian aviation sector and has been recognized for his leadership and dedication.

Having followed his career for a long while as  pilot and humanitarian, I can say I am often amazed why such a personality has not been giving a national award by successive government

Nigerian National Honours are a set of orders and decorations conferred upon Nigerians and friends of Nigeria every year. 

They were instituted by the National Honors Act No. 5 of 1964, during the First Nigerian Republic, to honour Nigerians who have rendered service to the benefit of the nation.

These honours are distinct from the honours that are part of the country's ancient chieftaincy system, which is a separate (but also legally defined) entity. 

National Honours are the highest honours or awards that a citizen can receive from his or her country for service to the country.
