MKO Abiola: Presidency commends Fani-Kayode, other Buhari critics over June 12 declaration

The Presidency has commended staunch critics of the President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration for recognizing the President’s decision to honour M.K.O. Abiola and to recognize the June 12, 1993 election.

Buhari’s spokesperson, Garba Shehu particularly commended former Aviation Minister, Femi Fani-Kayode for recognizing Buhari, and for lauding Buhari for taking such a historic decision.

His commendation was contained in an article entitled: `June 12 Tsunami and the Ones Who Won’t Forgive Buhari.’’

Part of the article read: “Barely after 48 hours by my count, there were over 150,000 tweets on Twitter Trend discussing the new presidential directive. Thankfully and unexpectedly, over 80 per cent of these tweets and reactions hailed Mr. President’s decision.

“In what could be described as a twist, many of such applauses came from well-known opposition voices like Femi Fani Kayode (@realffk) amongst others.

“The story on Facebook was not an exception. Nigerians were thankful to President Buhari for upholding democracy and staging a surprise when it was least expected.’’

Buhari had on Wednesday declared June 12 as Democracy Day and conferred national honours on Abiola, his running mate Amb. Babagana Kingibe, and foremost pro-democracy activist, late Gani Fawehinmi.

In his reaction, Fani-Kayode had commended Buhari for the gesture, saying the declaration was long overdue.
