The Senator representing Kaduna Central Senatorial district, Shehu Sani has said he is not surprised by President Muhammadu Buhari’s decision to confer a national honour on the presumed winner of the June 12, 1993 election, the late Moshood Kashimawo Abiola.
Sani stated this when he made an appearance on Channels Television’s Politics Today on Tuesday.
He was reacting to the special investiture that took place earlier in the day and said that Buhari was a supporter of the June 12 mandate.
“It didn’t come to me as a surprise because from all I know from history, President Muhammadu Buhari, as far back as 1994, has always been a supporter of the restoration of the June 12 mandate.
“But what happened today with the investiture and also the apology, is an appreciation of the struggle, the sacrifice and the service of Nigerians who laid down their lives and liberty in the struggle for freedom and restoration of MKO’s mandate,” Sani said.
