MKONational leader of the All Progressive Congress, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, has described the annulled June 12, 1993 presidential election presumed to be won by Late Chief Moshood Abiola as the root of Nigeria’s democracy.

Tinubu, who made this known in a statement to commemorate the 22nd anniversary of the annulment of the election, widely regarded as the freest and fairest in the nation’s political history, urged Nigerians to guard the hard won democratic freedom and prevent any hijack or abuse of the very principles of constitutional democracy.

“As we remember the June 12 struggle we are challenged to guard our hard won democratic freedom and prevent any hijack or abuse of the very principles of constitutional democracy.

“This anniversary offers us another reminder that this country is one set for greatness. Chief Moshood Abiola, the symbol of June 12 struggle is one of the greatest Nigerians to ever live. Through his life, we glean selfless service and commitment to people. Through his political struggle, we glean courage and incorrigible commitment to principles of the just, free and humane society”, Mr. Tinubu said.

Tinubu, a former governor of Lagos State, said the new APC-led federal government would practise politics according to the principles of the late Abiola, fondly called MKO.

“His politics was without bitterness and rancor. His patriotism was devoid of tribal marks and nepotism. It will be said, here lies a man who did his duty on earth; it is what we should all strive for.

“We owe it to Abiola and all the fallen patriots of the June 12 struggle to make sure our democracy never falters and this current government succeeds. We must also make sure that the People remain the focus of our policy and politics”, Mr. Tinubu said in the statement.
