June 12 Declaration: MKO Abiola, Fewehinmi Are True Hero Of Nigeria -Ribadu by songsteve(: 5:19 pm On Jun 07, 2018
Former chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Nuhu Ribadu, has greeted President Muhammadu Buhari's declaration of June 12 as the genuine democracy day as a welcome development.
Buhari's Wednesday announcement now cancelled the usual May 29 celebration and also giving recognition to late Moshood Abiola as the winner of the June 12 Presidential election, that was annulled by then military head of state, General Ibrahim Babaginda in 1993.
With award of honour of GCFR issued to MKO Abiola and Gani Fawehinmi, Ribadu commended the President for taking such a difficult decision after 25 years.
“Beyond celebration of democracy, this is a celebration of struggle and sacrifice for the collective good. Thank you, President Buhari.
“I’m particularly delighted that this one-man-gang for all that is civil and good is honoured today. Gani Fawehinmi lived for Nigeria. He tirelessly fought for human rights and respect for the rule of law. Gani was a true hero who should be celebrated,” Ribadu tweeted.
