June 12 can't be termed democracy day.
M.K.O Abiola is unbefitting to have the GCFR award.

If his own kith and Kin faulted and revolted against Goodluck Jonathan's stupid decision to rename University of Lagos after the coup-aiding treasonist.

The next administration will surely reverse this declaration.
If he likes, he should make Awolowo a President, put Fela Kuti on the Naira, rename Aso Rock after King Sunny Ade.
He won't be able to fool the smart Yorubas who know this is just acts of desperation to prevent his certain trip back to Daura in 2019.

Whether he did it with ulterior motives or not, the Yoruba race welcomes it as it is the right thing to do.

The fate of Buhari lies in the Southwest.

You wanna know who the yorubas will vote for? Ask yourself who do you think Yorubas stand to gain the most from in 2019? Buhari or Atiku? And then you can know who will win 2019.

As for the Southeast. Its nothing personal, its just politics.

Thank You, Herdsman of the Zoo for adding one more Holiday. I always love that June 12. Abiola sponsored coup de'tat in Nigeria. I love him for that. He always was called International Thief Thief (ITT) by Fela, I also love him for that.

MKO Abiola and the beautiful wife, Kudirat were murdered. I want the people that Buhari is trying to fool, to ask him. Who killed Mr/Mrs Abiola ? Why not formally declare him President-elect of June 12, 1993 election before giving award and declaring holiday ?

That is the best steps to take. Declare him a President-elect, then tell us who killed the President-elect. You can not pacify the dead with an award, but you can deceive the living, who choose to be foolish. Smart Yorubas can not be fooled.

The 'other' people you are referring to is just one tribe and cannot be but the same tribe.

In a sane society, June 12 is very very significant and should be embraced by all. It goes beyond Yoruba thing.
So you actually think Nigeria with about 350 ethnic nationalities is about that other one tribe you referred to?

Dude c'mon now!

PDPSMG calls for reversal Buhari's illegal June 12 'Democracy Day' declaration

As mixed reactions continue to trail the decision of President Muhammadu Buhari to change the notable Democracy Day from May 29 to June 12, the distinguished Peoples Democratic Party Students Mandate Group (PDPSMG), which is a students support group of the PDP, has joined majority of well-meaning Nigerians to question the motive behind this sudden declaration by President Buhari.

Reacting through her Publicity Secretary, Comr. Uchegbu Uchechi on the recent decision by the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, His Excellency Muhammadu Buhari, who declared June 12 as a "National Holiday" and "Democracy Day" which Mr President stated is to honour the late Bashorun Moshood Abiola, the 'presumed winner' of the June 12, 1993 presidential election whose victory was annulled by the then military head of state, Ibrahim Badamosi Babaginda (rtd), PDPSMG is not impressed by this political hogwash which was neither enacted through constituted legislation nor a popular consent from the good and great citizens of this great nation.

Since the inception of the Buhari/APC-led administration in 2015, the citizens of this country have been perennially misgoverned as the consistent incompetency of the present administration knows no bounds.

PDPSMG implores Nigerians most especially the Yorubas' whom this very deceitful government is seeking to pacify and buy over with its sentiment of 'June 12'. The Yorubas should not fall for the pretentious pacification of a government that is insensitive to the plight of the people. As this is a decision to deceive and hoodwink Nigerians into voting him and the APC for a second term.

We ask this salient question, why honour a man who was never sworn in as president in his lifetime with the highest title in the land that is reserved for presidents only, just to pacify the living whom the president and his cronies have severally dishonored with their insincerity, deceit, incompetence and blame game?

Recall that President Buhari, worked assiduously for General Sani Abacha during the persecution and travails of late MKO Abiola under Abacha's regrettable regime. Buhari never cared about Abiola's cruel detention.

Though Abacha died before Abiola, Buhari did not visit Abiola's family or graveside until he ran his election campaign. The president goofed again with this ill thought-out dictatorial decision as his actions and inactions shows clearly that he is not a true believer of democracy neither avowed adherent of democratic tenets and ideals.

The irony of this desperate ruse by Buhari is that June 12, 1993, was an election day not a swearing in day, so it can't be tagged 'Democracy Day's.

June 12 of every year since 1993 is actually a reminder that the mandate of majority of Nigerians was thwarted and the presumed winner of that election, Abiola was imprisoned and subsequently died in detention. The press release by the presidency, read thus "Abiola, the presumed winner of the annulled June 12, 1993 presidential election". What a disgraceful statement as it is visible to the blind, deaf, and dumb that the decision to honour MKO ABIOLA with a posthumous award of GCFR is a political scheme and gimmick born out of the grossly incompetent APC's desperation to hoodwink the Southwest, having realized that their blame games, deceit and lies are fast fading away. They've resorted to political gimmicks.

PDPSMG sees this as an insult on the sensibilities and collective psyche of Nigerians and a nation of great intellectuals.

PDPSMG charges Mr President who keeps disregarding rule of law and has plunged Nigeria into economic, social, and religious crisis amongst other negative policies since he took over power to truly extol democracy, which is government of the people, by the people, and for the people and not government of a selected few, by the selected few and for the selected few.

We urge the president to reconstitute his cabinet, including sacking himself as petroleum minister. He should review Nigeria's security apparatus to show that he truly belongs to nobody and belongs to everybody as no Igbo person is head of any security agency in Nigeria.

The presidency should respect the rule of law and our constitution. Buhari should declare murderous Fulani herdsmen as terrorists since they are ranked the fourth deadliest terrorist group in the world.

Mr President should tackle the alarming unemployment situation under his watch as over 4 million people have lost their jobs according to the National Bureau of Statistics (NBS), and fulfill his numerous campaign promises including reviving the economy which his government plunged into recession. He should reverse this illegal decision of his to award the late Abiola, other political icons and activists who have passed on with GCFR and GCON titles.

if I may ask....what constitution was followed in declaring May 29 as the nation's democracy day? All this crazy uproar is a fallout of our intra political hatred.

This crazy Greek gift by Buhari is a classic case of Nigerian rulers not thinking before following through on their pronouncements.

If the Yorubas decide to vote Buhari because of this, It will definitely confirm the deep rooted stereotypes other people have about them and what could sway their sophisticated brains when crumbs are dropped from the table.

The worst part is they call this Masterstroke and I am like Buhari brains and Masterstroke cannot exist in the same sentence no matter how hard he strokes their pricks.

You cannot tell Yoruba what to do... We have been doing our things in our own ways for long. Whether we vote for Buhari or not, it doesn't concern anyone. It is our right to do our things in our own way. So face your region, while we face our own region.

You can tag it anything you like...but it cannot change the GCFR honour awarding M.K.O ABIOLA. Whether you like it or not, Yoruba will vote for Buhari 2019... Let me tell you, no amount of ranting, wailing and hating can stop the love people have for Buhari/Osinbajo. And by the way, do you want Yoruba to join forces with you people that claim M.K.O.

I have been reading all sorts of crying, wailing and rolling in the mud, from a particular set of Nigerians IPADs and l wonder: Why take Tramadol for another man's headache?

South Westerners are not complaining yet these people are acting as if they took the GCFR from Ojukwu and gave it to Abiola? shocked shocked grin grin

Abeg, make dem swerve joor.
When they were collaborating with the same Northerners (in 1978 and 1983), to thwart Awolowo's Presidential ambition even when they know he was the better candidate, they did not consider themselves as stereotyped on remember what others will think about them.

Whether S/West vote APC/Buhari will depend on how the S/W evaluates his Govt.
Awon Dindinrin IPOB grin grin

Buhari just needs to sort out all these FUlani killings, arrest the Herdsmen responsible, sack all his Security appointees who are Patrons of these terrorist Fulani Herdsmen (l dont know if a single one will be left after that) and stop being so clanish and nepotistic..... and he would get votes from South West otherwise, O.Y.O. undecided undecided
