About

SALAUDEEN AKANO

Salaudeen Akano was 21 year old when he performed this historical and memorable duty to his beloved country. He was born on June 2, 1939 in Bukuru, Jos, Plateau State. He moved on with his career. As a Sub.- Lieutenant, he was on the battlefield during the Nigeria-Biafra civil war of 1967-70. Father of three boys and two girls, Akano retired as a Commodore in 1992

At midnight on 1 October 1960, Salaudeen Akano, then a naval rating, lowered the British Union Jack for the last time and hoisted the green-white-green flag of the Federation of Nigeria for the first time, signifying Nigeria's attainment of political independence.
Akano later got commissioned into the officer corps and rose to the rank of commodore. Akano attained the rank of Commodore and retired from the navy in 1992. By a supreme twist of fate, he died aged 62, on 1 October 2001
