Abaribe: Declare December 31 ‘Democracy Destruction Day’ To Mark Your 1983 Coup by nwakibie3(m): 3:38pm On Jun 07, 2018
A senator, Enyinnaya Abaribe (Abia-PDP), has asked President Muhammadu Buhari to declare December 31 as Democracy Destruction Day to mark the coup he led to end Nigeria’s Second Republic in 1983.

Mr Abaribe made this contribution to the dissent of All Progressives Congress senators on Thursday.

Then a Major-General, Mr Buhari on December 31, 1983 led by a group of senior army officers to overthrow the democratically elected government of President Shehu Shagari. He was appointed Head of State by the conspirators.

Now a democratically elected president, Mr Buhari on June 6 directed that effective 2019, Nigeria’s Democracy Day, marked every May 29 for the past 18 years, be shifted to June 12 to honour Moshood Abiola, the winner of the 1993 presidential election. Mr Abiola was never ssworn in as president. He was instead detained by the military and died in prison five years later.

Mr Abaribe said December 31, 1983 is significant enough to mark the day democracy was destroyed in Nigeria. He urged the president to declare the date just as he did June 12.

First, he joined his colleagues in commending Mr Buhari on the move.

“I support what Senator Olujimi and also what the Deputy Senate President had said, insisting that there may have to be an amendment of the constitution.

“I also want to add that it would also be necessary for the Executive to quickly bring to the National Assembly, an amendment to the Honours Act which states that there cannot be posthumous award. Now that they have jumped the gun to do posthumous award, it would be necessary for us to quickly amend that act.

“Finally, I want to also propose another day since we are now moving in the right direction, saying that democracy is needed, I want to propose that we also designate 31st December as Democracy Destruction Day because that was the day that this same president did a coup.”

Mr Abaribe was cut short by his colleague, Barau Jibrin (Kano-APC), who raised a point of order to call the attention of the Senate to a derailment from issue being discussed.

The point of order was sustained.

Buhari the destroyer.


He has destroyed countless relationship because guys can't afford to take their girls to Dominos Pizza to buy even that small coldstone icecream that will make your heart jump if your gf ask for it.


He has destroyed marriages because his hardship has made men to always tune to go slow yarn on wazobia FM in order to know where the worst traffic is in so that they can join the traffic and kill time instead of facing madam to bring money for food or even facing madam to play rough play in bed because the fear of giving birth this period is the beginning of wisdom.


He has destroyed even ashawo market because guys don't patronise them again rather guys now lock up and watch the latest series during weekend.


He destroyed Seun plans because the two ladies we had in mind he was going after I.e Linda and Tonto finally got married to guys that are really balling not my Seun that's looking for advert like Baba lasisi the vendor.


To destroy anything today just mention Buhari

Senator Abaribe is surprisingly the big star of this 8th Senate.
Hits from back to back, a fearless and vocal senator.

APC would soon find out he is a member of a phantom robbery syndicate.

Buhari never destroyed democracy.

Buhari only came to restored Nigeria dignity after the massive rigging,
As an honest man

They only called him to come and served, he never plan coup in all his life.

These flatino idiotic pig of Biafra guarantor will soon be singing the jobless lazy idiotic pigs of Biafra songs when he fail to produce their terrorist supreme leader nnamdi KANU.

It was the politician of the 2nd republic that personally destroyed democracy by their terrorist act of massively rigging election.

Meanwhile buhari is now solidifying democracy, that your ineffectual buffoon and thief obj just destroyed within 16yrs of this Democratic dispensation.

Buhari till 2023

Solidifying democratic what
Coup-plotting is never a conventional operation in the military norms or the Nigerian democratic process.
The only thing Buhari have is the "quota system" concept that undeservedly got him into the army & the coup-plotting skills he learnt while there that he put to use during the;
-July 29th.1966 Northern counter coup while in Ikeja Cantoment against late Gen.JTU Ironsi.
-July 29th.1975 military coup against Rtd.Gen.Yakubu Chinwa Gowon.
-Dec.31st 1983 military coup along side Babangida against then President Shehu Shagari.

So your fanatic support for Buhari should be guided by sound judgement.
