President Muhammadu Buhari has announced the cancellation of May 29 as the country’s annual Democracy Day.

Instead, the President said the annual celebration will now hold on June 12, arguing that June 12, 1993 , the date of the election popularly adjudged to be the freest and fairest in Nigeria’s history  “was far more symbolic of democracy in the Nigerian context than May 29 or even October 1”.

Buhari also announced that MKO Abiola, winner of the annulled election, will be posthumously awarded the highest honour in the land, GCFR.



President Buhari wrote on his Twitter:

Quote
Dear Nigerians, I am delighted to announce that, after due consultations, the Federal Govt has decided that henceforth, June 12 will be celebrated as Democracy Day. We have also decided to award posthumously the highest Honour in the land, GCFR, to the late Chief MKO Abiola.

The president also announced that the late MKO Abiola will be posthumously awarded the country’s highest honor, the Grand Commander of the Order of the Federal Republic (GCFR).

It was also announced that his running mate Baba Gana Kingibe will be honored with the Grand Commander of the Order of Niger (GCON).

The late Gani Fawehinmi, who fought for the actualization of the election, will also be posthumously honored with the Grand Commander of the Order of Niger (GCON).

A commemoration and investiture of the date as the new Democracy Day will take place on Tuesday, June 12, and will then on replace May 29 as the official Democracy Day.

Cheap political tactics.... If you supported MKO so much, why did you work for the same Abacha that refused to hand over to him when he was fighting for his mantle in 1995?
