The Martin Luther King family have clearly distanced themselves from the fake award giving to the Nigerian President, Muhammadu Buhari.
The King Centre had through their official Twitter account denied awarding President Muhammadu Buhari.
The centre says “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 Martin Luther the King.
The centre also said that Late Martin Luther King’s children were also not involved in the award ceremony.
The denial came on the heels of an award by visitors purportedly from the family of late African American civil rights leader Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., gave to Buhari in Abuja.
In a tweet from Aso Villa shortly after the award was given, The Presidency tweeted: “President Muhammadu Buhari today at the State House received Martin Luther King Jnr’s family. He was also conferred with the 1st Black History Month National Black Excellence and Exceptional African Leadership Award 2018.
