The positions of Minister for Internal Affairs and Minister for Justice were abolished through the Cabinet Reform amendment which passed last election.
Also it's legally questionable whether an Acting Governor has the power to bestow honours.

S019 is acting on behalf of Peanut, who publicly intended to award me the ONS during his term as governor, but forgot to.

He's not acting on behalf of Peanut. Peanut resigned and he, as Chancellor is Acting Governor in the interim period before a new Governor can be elected.

He is acting governor in place of Peanut. Not that it matters, there is no legal limitation to the power of an acting governor, nor is there a reason for you to care.

It's a potential grey area and I thought I might as well point it out after my main point noting the appointment to an office that was abolished four weeks ago.

It is always presumed than an acting or interim official has all of the powers and prerogatives of the office they (temporarily) assume. Thus we have had interim presidents nominate game moderators and members of the Supreme Court, acting senators vote on and introduce legislation, and acting governors sign bills into law.

Quote from: Constitution of the Northern Region, Article II§5, as amended
The chancellor, who must be a member of the Council, shall have the power [. . .] to administer the functions of the head of state as acting governor upon the death, impeachment, recall, or resignation of the governor, or whenever he should otherwise become unable to execute the duties of his office.

"The functions of the head of state" necessarily includes all powers vested in the governor by law, in absence of a statement to the contrary in the constitution itself.
