MKO Abiola’s daughter reacts to Buhari’s declaration of June 12 Democracy Day

One of the daughters of the late Bashorun Moshood Abiola, Rinsola Abiola has applauded President Muhammadu Buhari for recognising her father after 20 years.

Buhari in a press release declared June 12 as new democracy day.

He also announced that MKO Abiola, winner of the annulled election, will be posthumously awarded the highest honour in the land, GCFR.

Reacting to the development, Rinsola on her Twitter page described the honour as late.

She wrote “It’s going to be 20 years since daddy passed away in July. Two whole decades. This is coming really late but better late than never.

“The fact that some people refuse to acknowledge the truth doesn’t mean others won’t do the right thing.

“For whatever reason you think it is, it took 20 years and others could have done this but they didn’t.”
