FLASH BACK: Full Result Of #June12 Presidential Election


June 12, 1993, Presidential Election, adjudged as freest and fairest in the history of Nigeria, has regained prominence.

The issue of the election regained prominence after Nigeria’s President, Muhammadu Buhari declared June 12 as National Democracy Day.

President Buhari on Wednesday evening, June 6, named MKO Abiola, winner of 1993 presidential election that was annulled by former dictator Ibrahim Babangida, a holder of the Grand Commander of the Federal Republic, GCFR, 20 years after his death in 1998.

Buhari, who said he made the decision after due consultations, stressed that “June 12, 1993, was and is far more symbolic of Democracy in the Nigerian context than May 29, or even October 1”.

“Dear Nigerians, I am delighted to announce that, after due consultations, the Federal Government has decided that henceforth, June 12 will be celebrated as Democracy Day.

“We have also decided to award posthumously the highest Honour in the land, GCFR, to the late Chief MKO Abiola”, President Buhari said in a statement on Wednesday evening.

Late MKO Abiola.

June 12, 1993, Presidential election was between Abiola of the Social Democratic Party (SDP) and Bashir Tofa of the National Republican Convention (NRC).
