PDP: Buhari using June 12 to sway Nigerians ahead of 2019 elections
The People’s Democratic Party PDP has described President Muhammadu Buhari’s declaration of June 12 as Democracy day as a sign of desperation to sway Nigerians in less than
twelve months to an election where he is seeking a second term.
Kola Ologbondiyan, the party’s National Publicity Secretary in statement asked the president to shed his desperate actions in his quest to win the 2019 presidential election as Nigerians can no longer be deceived by such antics.
“If President Buhari genuinely wants to honour Chief Abiola, he should do so by ending all anti-democratic proclivities of his administration and allow for the rule of law and respect for our constitution.
“It is also shocking that the respectable grave of Abiola can be dishonoured by granting a posthumous award on him along with someone who denounced the June 12 mandate and preferred the company of his (Abiola’s) traducers,” he said.
