June 12 declaration: Nigerians are not illitrate – Tanko Yankasa replied Buhari

The National Chairman of the Northern Elders Council, NEC, Alhaji
Tanko Yakasai, has again said that President Muhammadu was
taking Nigerians for zombies.
He said Buhari had never spoken in favour of the June 12, 1993
presidential poll won by MKO Abiola, wondering why he should
come with honours now that the 2019 election is around the
corner.
Yakasai, who stated this when he spoke with Punch, added that
Buhari was hiding his real motives behind the award of national
honours for Abiola, Kingibe and Fawehinmi.
According to Yakasai, the declaration of June 12 as Democracy
Day by Buhari was to polish his ambition for the 2019 elections.
The elder statesman noted that Buhari had never uttered any word
of sympathy or support for Abiola’s cause since the annulled 1993
elections.
He said, “What Buhari has done is what is called political
gimmickry. What Abiola , Kingibe and their supporters are looking
for is the actual declaration of that election and Buhari is in the
position to do that . It is not about giving money or titles or
awards.
“Many of us Nigerians seem to be like zombies. We are people
who don’t use our brains. People, including Buhari, are now taking
Nigerians as
zombies. Awarding a national honour to compensate Abiola ,
Kingibe and their supporters is not enough.
“What the President should have done, like some have also
suggested , is to direct the Independent National Electoral
Commission to look for the figures of the 1993 elections and
formally announce the results and the winner accordingly.
