Breaking: President Buhari Declares June 12 As New Democracy Day, Confers Posthumous GCFR On Abiola

Nigeria’s President Muhammadu Buhari has announced June 12 as the new country’s Democracy Day, after due consideration on the matter, Buhari made the announcement today. The presidency also declared that they will award posthumously the highest Honour in the land, GCFR, to the late Chief MKO Abiola.

Chief Abiola’s running mate, Ambassador Baba Gana Kingibe, is also to be awarded a GCON. Furthermore, the late Chief Gani Fawehinmi, SAN, tireless fighter for human rights & democracy, & for the actualization of the June 12, 1993 elections,will be posthumously awarded a GCON.

In the view of Nigerians, as shared by this Administration, June 12, 1993 was and is far more symbolic of Democracy in the Nigerian context than May 29, or even October 1. June 12, 1993 was the day millions of Nigerians expressed their Democratic will in the freest, fairest & most peaceful elections since our Independence. That the outcome of that election was not upheld by the then military Govt does not detract from its democratic credentials.
