Nigerians Express Diverse Views On Buhari’s Declaration of June 12 As Democracy Day

The declaration by President Muhammadu Buhari of June 12 as a democracy day seem to be an unexpected move even as Nigerians have continued to express diverse reaction on the declaration.

While some have commended Mr. President for such a laudable act, some have described the move as long overdue adding that it is late timing for recognition of Western leader, MKO Abiola.

Still in another group of tweets, some individuals have lauded, MKO Abiola for being the first to win a free and fair election in the Country under the platform of Social democratic Party, SDP in 1993, while blaming past leaders for failure to recognize the effort of the late leader in establishing democracy in Nigeria.

In some other series of tweets, some Nigerians noted that the June 12 declaration is an attempt to buy Nigerian votes ahead of the 2019 elections.

While Naija News recalls that the main opposition party, Peoples Democratic Party, PDP criticized the President’s Move, some tweets reacted saying the party will regret such statements.
