    *Tinubu: With June 12 Declaration, Buhari Has Forever Buried The Notion That He Is Undemocratic*

    Bola Ahmed Tinubu, National Leader of the All Progressive Congress (APC), says that by declaring June 12 Democracy Day in place of May 29, President Muhammadu Buhari has “forever buried the ill-conceived notion that he is ambivalent to democracy”.

    In a statement released on Thursday evening by Tunde Rahman, his spokesman, Tinubu also said Buhari had shown all Nigerians and the world that we have the moral fortitude to objectively face our history, learn from it and improve our society by virtue of this learning. “The award of GCFR to Chief Abiola serves as an acknowledgement that he won the 1993 election and should have been allowed to serve as our president after winning that free and fair expression of the popular will,” he said.

    “We also commend the award to MKO Abiola’s VP candidate, Ambassador Baba Gana Kingibe and that given to Chief Gani Fawehinmi. Chief Fawehinmi was a fearless advocate for democracy and the human rights of the common man. Whenever and wherever he spoke, it was the language of truth to power.
