WHAT Uduaghan Said About Buhari’s Decision To Honour Abiola, June 12
By Dada Michaels
WHILE some few loud Nigerians were openly voicing their reservations against president Muhammadu Buhari’s decision to recognize June 12 as Nigeria’s Democracy Day as against the earlier May 29 and also award the highest honour in the land, GCFR to late business mogul, Chief MKO Abiola, the presumed winner of the June 12, 1993 presidential election, former Governor of Delta State, Dr. Emmanuel Uduaghan, begged to differ.
And incidentally, Uduaghan was a two-term Governor in now opposition party, People Democratic Party, PDP.
The former Governor who is taking a shot at the sole Senatorial seat in his Delta South come 2019 took to his Facebook profile ‘Emmanuel Eweta Uduaghan’ late Tuesday and described Buhari’s decision to honour Abiola, late activist lawyer Gani Fawehinmi, Babagana Kingibe as well as the recognition of June 12 as a “Historical Masterstroke”.
ONNLive reproduces Uduaghan’s post unedited here:
JUNE 12: NATIONAL & HISTORICAL MASTERSTROKE:
I listened to various speakers at the Special National Honours Investiture today in Abuja.
PMB’s RECOGNITION of June 12 is a HISTORICAL MASTERSTROKE.
Many fallouts, one of which will be political.
