Outrage as Photos of the Current Place Where the Man who Designed Nigeria's Flag Lives Emerge

Photos of the house of Michael Taiwo Akinkunmi, the man who designed Nigeria's flag, has angered many people

- In the viral photos, the outside of the building begs for renovation to say the least, with a restroom that is usually obtainable in economic communities

- Many slammed the government for not looking after Taiwo who they described as a national treasure

A 23-year-old Michael Taiwo Akinkunmi had thrown his hat in the ring as he offered to design the nation's flag. His design entry in 1959 became what is known today as the Nigerian flag.

62 years down the lane, the man is not living the best of life many would have thought, owing to the fact that he contributed to one of Nigeria's symbol and by extension, a means of identification.

The building exterior looked unkempt with its faded colours, while the other image - the restroom - which was shared was in a pitiable state.

Nigerians expressed sadness at the recent discovery with many calling out the government over their negligence of one they described as a national treasure.

Useless outrage...There is no Outrage.

His condition is a representative of country's flag he designed.

How is green white green cloth a design for heaven's sake? A piece of cloth for that matter?


Tunde Ednut should change his condition since he is more concerned..

Nonsense and stupid flag.

Useless outrage
Not entirely useless considering he is associated with contributing to what represents a nation's identity, so sentimentally he should be taken care of. I only wonder what's so special in designing plain green white green cos those who create designs today are just paid for any job done, and that's it.

How interesting! This man is an icon.

He represented Nigeria through his flag design.

He is still representing Nigeria by living in a condition that describes the state of things in Nigeria.

Legend!

I know what I said may not make sense. Don't bother about it.

You can just waka pass. cheesy

I see daftness and dumbness everywhere. Green and white and green again? What's so difficult about that. Even a year-old child can design better than that.

I make no apologies, but this man's design of a plain green white green lacks any kind of artistry, very tasteless and bland. Smaller African and European countries have better minimalistic designs reflecting indept culture and history of their people.

I shudder to think how he came out tops in the so called competition. Who presided over the board that decided him the winner? The individual must be blind.

NB; If anyone should be celebrated, it should be the guy sho designed the coat of arm, funny we don't even know the name of the fellow. But history class always taught us about Taiwo Akinkumi

Unnecessary noise!
So because the man's design was selected as the winner in a contest to design Nigeria's flag many decades ago(and I guess the winning had a prize attached which was given to him),.and in which thousands of Nigerians participated, Government should be responsible for painting his house and changing his toilet seats?
Una sabi make noise for useless things sha.

Brother, to be honest with you.. who ever thought it was a good idea to mix red with green and black deserves to be shot in the balls. I mean, can you even wear those colours outside? Unless you want to look like a masquerade undecided
