JUNE 12 1993

Adeola Aderounmu

It is another June 12. This is supposed to be the real democracy day in Nigeria. MKO Abiola won the freest election ever conducted in the history of Nigeria. We never had it so fair.

Ibrahim Babangida cancelled the election. 17 years later we have not recovered from the evil cancellation of the results of that election. I have continued to write about June 12 for the past 3 or 4 years and there are entries on this blog that have taken care of the discussion.

Abiola died in detention while trying in vain to actualise the prestigious mandate of June 12 1993.

June 12 2010

Nigeria will play Argentina in the World Cup championship going on in South Africa. June 12 is a special date in Nigeria.

I wish the Super Eagles the best. It’s just another game and hopefully the better team wins. Otherwise the lucky team carries the day.
