A faction of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Kwara has commended President Muhammadu Buhari’s declaration of June 12 as Democracy Day in Nigeria.
Hon. Bashir Omolaja Bolarinwa, factional chairman of the party mad this known on Friday in a press statement copy of which was made available to the News Agency of Nigeria in Ilorin.
“We are indeed appreciative of the historic move by the people’s president who has always shown that he is holding in trust the mandate of the people.
“Nigerians have always trusted President Buhari knowing fully well that he has everything to reposition the country and restore her lost glory,” Bolarinwa added.
He described the recognition of June 12 as heartwarming as it has laid to final rest the agitation of many years for the acclaimed winner of the June 12, 1993 presidential election, Chief MKO Abiola to be recognized and declared accordingly.
“The conferment of the highest honor (GFCR) on the acclaimed winner of June 12 presidential election is a watershed.
“The recognition of our past heroes as announced by the president on June 6th, 2018 was made complete with another posthumous honor accorded late Chief Gani Fawehinmi SAN.
“For us in Kwara State, we are solidly behind President Muhammadu Buhari and his lofty plans to take the country out of the woods,” he said.
Bolarinwa, however, advised President Buhari to consider the threat from the National Assembly as the barking of the lost dogs in the wilderness.
“We have cautioned them times without number, but it is evident that they are on a voyage to return the country to dark days.
“Nigerians know that their rantings amounted to nothing, because they have shown they are anti-people and self-centered,” Bolarinwa added.
The factional chairman therefore prayed the God will give the President good health and strength to steer the ship of Nigeria to a safe end.
