Mike Adenuga Jr has received his third highest national honour in the last six years across West Africa and Europe.
The third national honour was bestowed on the African billionaire by the president of France, Emmanuel Macron, during his visit to Nigeria.
Macron conferred France’s highest national honour of Commander of the Legion of Honour on Mike Adenuga, in Ikoyi Lagos.
The conferment by Macron makes Adenuga the first Nigerian to be decorated with the award in the history of France.
In September 2012, Adenuga was honoured with Nigeria’s highest honour for a civilian who is not in government, Grand Commander of the Order of the Niger (GCON). The honour was bestowed on Adenuga by ex-President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan.
