Balarabe-Musa-Wants-Those-Who-Annulled-June-12-Election-Tried

Alhaji Balarabe Abdulkadir Musa, the Chairman, Conference of Nigeria Political Parties (CNPP) and former governor of Kaduna State, while addressing his audience in Kaduna on Democracy day has charged President Buhari to commence an investigation into the annulment of 1993 June 12 presidential election without delay saying that the annulment of such election which was widely believed to have been won by Chief Moshood Abiola, should be declared as treason.
The former governor observed that ” The President must go a step further beyond declaring June 12 as a Democracy Day, but also informed Nigerians why the elections was annulled and punish those involved in the annulment for treasonable felony.”
“Those who masterminded the annulment of the election should be described and recognised as unpatriotic fellows”, he said.
He also lamented that the annulment of June 12 has done more damages to the country than good, adding, that “the question on why the election was annulled must be answered.”

His words: “Every other election that comes after the June 12, 1993 were never free, fair and credible. The ghost of June 12 will continue to hunt the country if the government fail to rise up and correct the mistakes of past. The best way to honor MKO Abiola is not just to declare June 12th as Democracy Day but to also bring those that killed him to justice. They must be exposed and prosecuted for murder. It is only after that is done that the ghost of June 12th will die and Nigeria will know peace.”
“The Democracy we have today in Nigeria has not met the yearnings of Nigerians in anyway. ” Democracy is the Supreme Will of the people, and for the fact that we have twenty years of uninterrupted democracy does not mean we have the Supreme Will of the people”, he said.
Femi-Kayode

Musa, while applauding Buhari for recognizing June 12, maintained that the transition between the then military head of state, General Abdulsalam Abubakar to the former president, Olusegun Obasanjo was not a true democracy.
“From the past administration to the present administration, the elections that brought them in were not the true reflection of people’s will and therefore they were fraud,” he said.
He however, advised that the ongoing Democratic sustenance in the country could be maintained with ”the political class respecting the will of the people by allowing free, fair and credible elections that will lead to a legitimate government”.
Former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode and former governor of Kaduna state, Balarabe Musa have called on President Muhammad Buhari to quickly embark on an investigation into the annulment of 1993 June 12 presidential election.
Babaginda-and-Abiola

In another development, the former minister of Aviation Fani Kayode via his twitter handle recently said one of the questions that previous governments have to answer is why they refused to honor Chief MKO Abiola and declare June 12th as the authentic Democracy Day?
“No matter what we may feel about Buhari at least he found the courage to do that whilst others failed. Last year President Buhari declared June 12 as Nigeria’s new Democracy Day. The declaration however became legal after the National Assembly passed into law, the bill for an Act to amend the Public Holidays Act to declare June 12 as Democracy Day in Nigeria.
According to him, the best way to honor MKO Abiola is not just to declare June 12th as Democracy Day but to also bring those that killed him to justice. The decision to have June 12 as the country’s Democracy Day is based on the presidential election of June 12, 1993, which the late Abiola supposedly won. The poll was however annulled by then military president, Ibrahim Babangida.
