PHOTO: Recent look of Pa Akinkunmi, the man who designed Nigerian flag. He needs help

A recent picture of 80-year-old Michael Taiwo Akinkunmi, the man who designed Nigeria’s flag has emerged with a passionate plea to save him before he dies.

In 1959, a year before Nigeria’s independence, a 23-year-old student, Mr. Akinkunmi, helped colour the country’s identity. Sixty-two years after a British journalist first suggested the name “Nigeria”, the Ibadan-born student gave the new country its national flag.
He is still alive but his present living condition is that of a forgotten hero.
A photographer shared the picture today with the caption: “R.T Our Hero mustn’t Die Before we Start celebrate Them. Here is Pa,Akinkunmi Akinwunmi @Akinkun33004060 The Brain Behind Nigeria Flag.”
