Bode George & Mrs. Cecilia Ibru are still on national honours list

Chief Bode George, Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, and other ex-convicts, are still on the national honours list. Other prominent convicts whose names are  on the list  are a  former Inspector-General of Police, Tafa Balogun;  ex-Managing Director of Oceanic Bank, Cecilia Ibru; her former counterpart in the defunct Intercontinental Bank, Erastus Akingbola; and  other ex-managing directors of banks  convicted after they were conferred with the  national honours.

Despite the fact that President Goodluck Jonathan  during the 2012 national honours awards in Abuja said that he had directed the national honours award committee to withdraw the awards from awardees who had been convicted or undergoing criminal trial, it was investigated that they are unable to carry-out the orders...

Hmmm! I think justice is to be fought and sourced for. Left for me I'd say they should replace the committee members with pro-active ones and the less busy. Or what do you guys feel?
