The Senate has urged the Federal Government to immortalise MrTaiwo Akinkunmi, the designer of the Nigerian national flag.

This followed the adoption of a motion for state burial and immortalisation of Taiwo Akinkunmi the designer of the Nigerian national flag at plenary on Tuesday by Sen. Sharafadeen Alli (APC-Oyo).

Presenting the motion, Mr Alli said Mr Akinkunmi was a remarkable Nigerian,whose creative mind was behind the design of Nigerian national flag.

“Akinkunmi passed on Aug 29 as a national hero, it is only befitting that he be remembered and honored based on his legacy for generations to come because he played a pivotal role in creating the iconic symbol that represents Nigeria as a great nation and has been a source of pride for all Nigerians since independence,” he said.

He said in recognition of his noble contribution, the 7th Assembly passed a resolution urging the federal government to place him on monthly salary.

“This was honoured, graciously approved by the Federal Government and paid till he passed-on.

“Further aware that Taiwo Akinkunmi’s design of the Nigerian national flag is not just a piece of cloth, it represents the hopes and dreams of an entire nation.

” It is a powerful symbol of our unity in diversity, our resilierice, and our commitment to a shared future. Immortalizing him and granting him a state burial is a demonstration of the respect and honor that Nigeria accords to her heroes, living or late,” he said.

Senate thereafter observed a minute silence in honour Mr Akinkunmi and prayed for the repose of his soul.
