Happy Democracy Day: Who Are Your Heroes And Villains Of June 12? by JKisOK(m): 8:10am On Jun 12
Today is June 12, a day that South-West states have celebrated since 1999 as their own Democracy Day, and the Federal Government has adopted for celebration as Democracy Day throughout Nigeria. This years marks the first time it will be celebrated nationwide.

The undisputed Hero and Icon of the day is the Millionaire Business Mogul and Presidential Candidate of the Social Democratic Party (SDP), Bashorun Moshood Kashimawo Olawale Abiola. He had as his Running Mate, Ambassador Baba Gana Kingibe. Running on the ticket of the rival National Republic Convention (NRC) in the two horse-race was Kano Businessman, Alhaji Bashir Tofa, who has Dr. Sylvester Ugoh as his Running Mate.

In an election that local and international observers adjudge as the best ever in Nigeria, Abiola won with 8,341,309 (58.36%) votes to Tofa’s 5,952,087 (41.64%). However, General Ibrahim Babangida surprised the entire nation and the world by annulling this highly credible election.
In the fight for the revalidation of his mandate, Abiola was arrested and detained by General Sani Abacha, and he died in detention in 1998.

Democracy in Nigeria is only imaginary and theoretical.... There is nothing to be happy about..... The same people that killed Abiola are the ones celebrating him.... I doubt if Abiola would even be happy with what is happening... He knows everything is against what he wished for Nigeria and Nigerians....
There was a country.

:DThe villains are the Nigerian people who wouldn't come out in mass to demand the release of Abiola, our problem in this country is we are scared, everybody fighting for his or her pocket, nobody want to sacrifice for the greater good, that why politician takes us for granted, if you want a revolution, take it, even if it by blood and your children children will enjoy the fruit of their fathers

As a Riverian(we voted en-masse for Tofa), my Winner of June 12 is Bashir Tofa, as he readily accepted the annulment of the election in utmost good faith without unnecessary heating up the polity.

My Villain is M.K.O. Abiola who wanted to cause untold problems in Nigeria because of annulment. He wanted people to die. Didn't he hear GEJ Say no ambition is worth the life of any human being. grin cheesy

A government afraid of its citizens is Democracy. Citizens afraid of its government is Tyranny. What we celebrate in Nigeria is tyranny not democracy.

Even MKO would not be happy in his grave.

Enough of all this noise abeg
