President Muhammadu Buhari has failed to confer national honours on any individual since his inception of office in 2015 contrary to the usual practice of holding the investiture every year.
The President, who assumed office on May 29, 2015, failed to host the investiture in 2015 and 2016.
With only three working days left this year, there are no indications that it can hold in 2017.
The last time the conferment of the awards took place was on September 29, 2014 when former President Goodluck Jonathan conferred different categories of national honours on 313 persons.
