June 12 honours: Wabara lauds Buhari

Lukman Olabiyi

A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Sir. Marc Wabara, has commended President Muhammadu Buhari for the conferment of national honours on Chief M. K. O. Abiola, the winner of the June 12, 1993 presidential election.

Describing the award as “significant in many ways,” Wabara noted that the gesture “is an act of statesmanship geared towards national healing and cohesion,” adding that “History will be kind to President Buhari for having the courage to redress this long-standing smear on our democratic landscape.”

The Abia South senatorial aspirant and former bank chief executive stated that aside from the closure the awards and declaration of June 12 as a national holiday have brought to June 12 activists and Nigerians generally, “The honours will go a long way in cementing our democratic ethos, leading inevitably to national unity, growth and development.”

He described the honours as “long overdue,” commending former National Electoral Commission (NEC) Chairman, Professor Humphrey Nwosu “for his steadfastness, courage and integrity. He is indeed deserving of appropriate honour alongside other June 12 activists.”

Wabara stated that President Buhari has by the awards “shown high leadership ideal and the political will worthy of emulation by current and future leaders.”
