Buhari has fix Obasanjo illitracy – Falana

Femi Falana, a senior advocate of Nigeria (SAN), says President
Muhammadu Buhari has by declaring June 12 as Nigeria’s
Democracy Day put an end to the “hypocrisy” of ex-President
Olusegun Obasanjo.
In a statement issued on Wednesday, Falana said declaring June
12 as Democracy Day “validated the integrity of the fair and free
election that was criminally annulled by the Ibrahim Babangida
junta”.
The human rights lawyer also called on the government to adopt
Abiola’s welfare programme to tackle poverty.
“The Muhammadu Buhari administration made history today by
conferring the post humous national award of Grand Commander
of the Federal Republic (GCFR) on Chief M. K. O. Abiola, the
acclaimed of the June 12, 1993 presidential election for his huge
contribution to the restoration of democratic rule in Nigeria,” the
statement read.
“By declaring June 12 Democracy Day the federal government has
officially validated the integrity of the fair and free election that
was criminally annulled by the Ibrahim Babangida junta.
“By recognizing June 12 as Democracy Day the federal
government has put an end to the hypocrisy of May 29 which was
proclaimed by the Olusegun Obasanjo regime. By confering the
post humous award of national award of Grand Commander of the
Order of Niger (GCON) on Chief Gani Fawehinmi SAN the federal
government has officially endorsed his enormous contributions to
the titanic battle against military dictatorship and promotion of
human rights in Nigeria.
“In addition to the historic gesture the federal government should
proceed to adopt chief Abiola’s programme of welfare to poverty
and respect the human rights of all Nigerians which Chief Gani
Fawehinmi SAN championed and defended in his life time.
“In particular, the federal government should mark the first national
democracy day on June 12, 2018 with the release of all citizens
who are being detained illegally all over the country and immediate
compliance with all valid and subsisting court orders.”
The lawyer also called on the government to equally honour
Kudirat Abiola who was assassinated while defending her
husband’s mandate.
