This is as tweeted by president Buhari’s handle @MBuhari as he declared June 12 democracy day and also awarded posthumously the highest Honour in the land, GCFR, to the late Chief MKO Abiola. He wrote:
Dear Nigerians, I am delighted to announce that, after due consultations, the Federal Govt has decided that henceforth, June 12 will be celebrated as Democracy Day. We have also decided to award posthumously the highest Honour in the land, GCFR, to the late Chief MKO Abiola.
Reno Omokri wasn’t pleased with the new development he tweeted:
@Mbuhari is a joke. In desperation for the Southwest vote, he has declared June 12, Democracy Day a d given MKO Abiola a post humous GCFR. What hypocrisy! This was a man who served Abacha while Abacha jailed Abiola. This was a man who praised Abacha, Abiola’s jailer!
