On Tuesday, 11th October 2022, Dr. Ameyo Stella Adadevoh received the Posthumous National Honor of Officer of the Order of Niger (OON). This was conferred by His Excellency, President of The Federal Republic of Nigeria, President Muhammadu Buhari.
Dr. Adadevoh has now joined other prominent awardees found worthy of the various prestigious national honors conferred by the Federal Government of Nigeria for distinguishing themselves through their service to the nation, humanity, and their contribution to national development.
The event, which took place at the International Conference Center in Abuja, had 450 Nigerian and non-Nigerian awardees in various categories. About 100 other Nigerians, along with Dr. Adadevoh, also received the OON Award.
These National Awards are the first to be conferred since the inception of President Muhammadu Buhari’s government in 2015. This also happened just five months after Dr. Adadevoh received the National Productivity Order of Merit (Posthumous) Award.
For love, duty, and country we are grateful that the life, labors and legacy of Dr. Ameyo Stella Adadevoh (OON) were not in vain as we continue to celebrate her through our work and commitment to keeping our nation healthy and safe.
On her behalf, the DRASA Health Trust Board Chairman, Bankole Cardoso, received the award. “It’s been about 8 years. And to still get this recognition is very nice for me and my family and I’m sure she’s happy.” expressed Bankole Cardoso while speaking to the Arise News crew at the event.
