This was MKO Abiola speaking 25years ago about the issues of corruption, nepotism, opacity of the NNPC, over-dependence on oil, etc. 2&half decades later, we are still here, probably worse. Those who clapped & stood with him then are the ones enslaving us today. #DemocracyDay 1/2 pic.twitter.com/YwZAnkNpAQ

Happy #DemocracyDay Nigeria.
Thank you H.E @MBuhari for rewriting our history and bringing alive the words of our national anthem.

June 12 is at the soul of our democratic struggle; a threshold in our national life. #DemocracyDay

One of the questions that previous govt’s have to answer is why they refused to honor Chief MKO Abiola and declare June 12th as the authentic Democracy Day?
No matter what we may feel about @MBuhari at least he found the courage to do that whilst others failed.

This man is Yoruba. He ruled for eight years, but he never acknowledged the role of Abiola/June 12 in his emergence as President. He even traveled out & told the world that MKO ABIOLA was not the messiah that Nigeria needed! His name is OLUSEGUN OBASANJO 👇#DemocracyDay pic.twitter.com/HvxDIdHEXY

President Muhammadu Buhari is perhaps one of the finest democrats I have seen, because this is a man that believes in the rule of law, and you cannot have democracy without respect for the rule of law. ~El-Yakub Umar. #DemocracyDay

As we remember the cancelation of June 12 elections by Babangida, the arrest of MKO by Abacha and the killing of MKO after Abacha’s death to balance the equation, let’s not forget your MCM who was an integral part of the military junta.#DemocracyDay pic.twitter.com/EhYmlJER15

#June12 was special because for the first time, Nigerians spoke as one by electing MKO Abiola, a man of the people. @MBuhari is special because he is the first President to recognize this fact.#June12 is a celebration of #freedom, #unity, #courage & #hope.
