“President Buhari made this day Democracy Day which should have been done since 1999. This shows that the spirit of June 12 is what we should expect in this administration.”

Also at the venue, former Akwa Ibom State governor, Godswill Akpabio, said Nigerians should be part of what President Buhari did by recognising June 12 as National Democracy Day in Nigeria.

“This shows that the sacrifice of MKO Abiola for democracy and the unity of this country is not a waste. We should be proud of Buhari for doing this,” he said.
