The National Publicity Secretary, APC, Mallam Lanre Issa-Onilu in a statement on Thursday said the declaration of June 12 as Nigeria’s Democracy Day by the APC-led federal government, has further cemented the credentials of President Muhammadu Buhari as a true and genuine democratic.
According to his statement, “President Buhari displayed political will in recognising and appreciating the sacrifices of many Nigerians in the enthronement of democracy in our nation and the ultimate prize paid by the presumed winner of the June 12, 1993 Presidential Election, Chief Moshood Abiola.

“Going forward, the APC-led government would, in words and actions, continue to promote and consolidate on the gains of democratic governance in the country, with a view to entrenching its finest ideals on our body polity, while calling on all well meaning Nigerians to imbibe this spirit in the overall interest of our beloved country.”
