Today the FG declared that henceforth June 12 will be regarded as democracy day. The President stated this via a statement released a while ago.
In the statement, the President also said the presumed winner of the 1993 elections will be posthumously awarded the highest title in Nigeria GCFR. The vice presidential candidate Babagana Kingigbe will also be awarded the title GCON.

Late Human Right activist Gani Fawehinmi Is also awarded the title GCON, the statement signed by the president said.

Buhari, your desperation to retain power is so strong.
One thing is certain, you might succeed in deceiving some fanatical yoryuba Muslimns, but you can't deceive progressive/Yoruba Christians.
We Christian Yorubas will not vote for you in 2019.
We won't vote for someone who is busy killing our Christian brothers in north central because we all know that once you are done with northern Christians, you will face southern Christians, Yoruba Christians included during your second tenure.
God forbids.!

If Abiola is so special in Yoruba land as you want to paint it, why did my people reject renaming Unilag after him ?
Abiola has come and gone, we have our way of mourning and remembering him.

Terrorist Buhari, your antics is dead on arrival .
Progressive Yorubas are wiser...

Wow

This is what is called "Nitori eran ni ma pe malu Broda" grin

If SW decide to trade 4(x N) years of servitude to Buhari because of a holiday and a post houmous honour then they have been overwhelmingly overrated in the intellectual power house department.

The Power is in YOUR hands

Another tactics to garner vote from South West.
Over to the gullible people. grin

Nobody is complaining now that a day an election was annulled has been declared a public holiday but if IPOB chooses a day to celebrate their own fallen heroes, some set of people will start foaming in the mouth.

I doubt this news is true.

But if true, Buhari has really gone full scale sentimental and tokenist in a bid to secure his SW votes.

It would be remembered that this was a noble action Obasanjo refused to do.

Obasanjo would be shedding tears of shame now.

It is good that a day the SW governors had legally declared special since 1999, has now been accepted by the federal government as a national holiday for the national mandate to rule that Abiola received by democratic votes, and for the national struggle that was precipitated by that irresponsible annulment.

Shame to IBB.

We will always remember May 29 As Nigeria's democracy day and June 12th as the democracy day Buhari approved 6days to June 12th of 2018 to persuade the southwest to vote him back. The South West are too educated to fall for the trick.

Why wasn't this decision made in 2015 when Ogun and Lagos governors begged for it and later awarded holidays in their states

Waiting for Yinka Odumakin, FFK, Adebanjo, and Fayose to reply him.

Imagine Kingibe also awarded GCON. #ThisisNigeria

What is actually going on?
Could this be a plot towards extending his stay in office?
Then he hands over on June 12th

undecided Lessons for Ogun people.... Obasanjo attacked Fela...he hated Awolowo...and refused to recognise June 12 even though Abiola was also from Ogun. Now someone from the North...hmmm. I am not by this supporting Buhari or clapping for him. All i want us to learn is that by our actions and inactions, we are creating chances for others to take advantages.
