President Muhammadu Buhari did the unthinkable by honouring late MKO Abiola with the most prestigious national honour (GCFR), the Aare Ona Kakanfo of Yoruba Land, Gani Adams, has said.

He made the assertion at the 25th anniversary of June 12. 1993, presidential election organised by the Oodua Peoples Congress (OPC) in Lagos state in collaboration with the Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ), Lagos state Council.

Adams, also OPC National Coordinator, said: “Where we least expected the truth about June 12 to come from, there is where it came.

“I will like to express my appreciation to President Buhari for taking the bold initiative of honouring the late Abiola and the late Gani Fawehinmi.

“Whether the Federal Government’s decision is more political than legal, as argued by some people, for me, it is crystal clear that the journey to make June 12 our Democracy Day started years back.

“I feel relieved to witness this day being recognised as our Democracy Day. Today, we have defeated the evil voices that killed the dream of the late MKO Abiola.”
