Ojukwu’s Burial

June 12 remains our national nemesis – Opadokun

Though the realisation of June 12 lies in the forgotten past, the vestiges of the agitation by political activists and pro-democracy operators still linger on. For the former General Secretary of Afenifere and NADECO, Chief Ayo Opadokun, June 12 cannot be wished away even though Nigeria is currently enjoying civilian rule but not democracy. In his characteristic manner, he said the activities chronicle the woes of Nigeria and posited that May 29 can never be an accepted date for the celebration of democracy in Nigeria.
