Nigeria became an independent country on 1 October 1960 and in 1963 became the Federal Republic of Nigeria. The republic instituted two orders of merit: the Order of the Niger and the Order of the Federal Republic.[1]


The two highest honours, the Grand Commander in the Order of the Federal Republic and Grand Commander in the Order of the Niger are awarded to the President and Vice-President respectively. The Presiding Judge in the Supreme Court and the Chairman of the Senate are qualitative and ex officio Commander in the Order of the Niger.


The Nigerians followed the British example in the form and structure of the order. Similarly, there are post-nominal letters for members of the Order of the Niger.

  • Grand Commander of the Order of the Niger (GCON)
  • Commander of the Order of the Niger (CON)
  • Officer of the Order of the Niger (OON)
  • Member of the Order of the Niger (MON)

The order has a Civil Division and a Military Division. The ribbon of the latter division has a small red line in the middle.
