Former governor of Abia state, Orji Uzor Kalu, says the posthumous honour being conferred on Chief MKO Abiola has addressed the injustices associated with the annulment of June 12, 1993 presidential election


- He says the recognition of June 12 has proved wrong those doubting the commitment of President Buhari to democracy

- Chief Ayo Adebanjo describes the honour on MKO Abiola as a political gimmick

Former governor of Abia state, Orji Uzor Kalu, has said ex-president Olusegun Obasanjo once challenged him when he declared June 12 public holiday.

Kalu told reporters on Monday, June 11, that he was the first governor in the country that declared June 12 a public holiday, Daily Trust reports.

He said the posthumous honour being conferred on Chief MKO Abiola as the winner of the freest and fairest election in the country by President Muhammadu Buhari has addressed the injustices associated with the annulment of June 12, 1993 presidential election
