Former governor of Kaduna State Balarabe Musa said President Muhammadu Buhari’s declaration of June 12 as Democracy Day had given Nigerians renewed hope.
The President on Wednesday declared that June 12 will henceforth be celebrated as Democracy Day and a title of GCFR be conferred on Abiola, the presumed winner of the annulled 1993 presidential election.
Musa, who is the National Chairman of the Peoples Redemption Party, in a statement added that the actions give hope that Buhari can do the right thing and correct wrongs before it’s too late.
“President Buhari’s action with regards to declaration of June 12 as democracy day and award of the highest honour to late Chief MKO Abiola are relevant, just, courageous and patriotic.
“The actions give hope that President Buhari can do the right thing and correct wrongs before it’s too late for him and for the nation,’’ Musa said.
