June 12 is at the soul of our democratic struggle; a threshold in our national life. #DemocracyDay
This was MKO Abiola speaking 25years ago about the issues of corruption, nepotism, opacity of the NNPC, over-dependence on oil, etc. 2&half decades later, we are still here, probably worse. Those who clapped & stood with him then are the ones enslaving us today. #DemocracyDay 1/2
Happy #DemocracyDay Nigeria! 🇳🇬 Let’s take care of our great country! ✊🏾

As Nigeria marks Democracy Day today, how will you describe the nation's democracy in one word? #DemocracyDay
I’ve not gotten over the migraine I had when I interviewed this man last year 😩 At some point I was confused and didn’t realize what I asked him again 😂😂😂

June 12: The key actors👇
As we celebrate #democracyDay, we remember Chief MKO and the many unnamed freedom fighters who gave it all in the struggle for the actualization of the #June12
Special appreciation goes to president @MBuhari
for standing on the side of history, justice and equity.
On this day 26 years ago, Nigerians elected Moshood Kashimawo Olawale (MKO) Abiola President. #DemocracyDay #DemocracyAt20
2/2 Those who cheered as he promised an end to tyranny & corruption are today cheering tyranny, looting & impoverishing our citizens.
Nigerians must unite against the stagnation of the majority by a few as was in ‘93.
“We are one nation under God, or aren’t we?” #DemocracyDay https://t.co/meqanuKV53
“Ladies and gentlemen, my optimism for a better Nigeria is unshakable.” – President @MBuhari
#DemocracyDay is a sombre commemoration of our nation’s history. It is a reminder that a government for, of, and by the people is and must be Nigeria’s only recourse.
At 35 our graduates are considered old for jobs. But at 70 our leaders are still contesting for posts. 🤔
This man is Yoruba. He ruled for eight years, but he never acknowledged the role of Abiola/June 12 in his emergence as President. He even traveled out & told the world that MKO ABIOLA was not the messiah that Nigeria needed! His name is OLUSEGUN OBASANJO 👇
We shouldn't, after '26 years of June 12', be battling with those who are being detained without trial in our country. ~Femi Falana. #DemocracyDay

#MKOAbiola #DemocracyDay #June12
While October 1st is the day Nigeria became a republic after her first democratic process, May 29th is the official date for celebrating democracy as it is the day them military ruler Gen. Abdusalam Abubakar handed over power to Chief Olusegun Obasanjo.
MKO Abiola was the 1st Nigeria to loot the nation on a grand scale & this was the genesis of his fortune.
As an accountant representing ITT, he, Obasanjo & the hierachy of the military, inflated the ITT contract to the tune of hundreds of millions of dollars.
One President tried to narrow down the importance of June 12 by renaming UNILAG to one funny name.
June 12 was a struggle for a New - Nigeria. It was a struggle that united the North-South.
June 12 was even bigger than MKO.
We missed that golden chance.

At this time let's not forget MKO Abiola and others that fought and gave their lives to see democracy entrenched in Nigeria. https://t.co/Y8EUnqpOwF
Our democracy has grown by leaps and bounds in the past 20 years, and Nigerians deserve a pat on the back. Today, calls for re- dedication of ourselves to pursuing those issues that promote national unity and peaceful co- existence. #DemocracyDay

He financed Abacha's Coup against Shonekan
He financed IBB Coup against Buhari
He financed Ugandan Museveni against Indi Amin
He laundered $800m for S. Doe of Liberia.
He got rich from stealing Nigeria's money with ITT
That we immortalise MKO Abiola amazes me
As Nigerians celebrate Democracy Day, some FCT indigenes have called on President @MBuhari
to take proactive steps in addressing resettlement issues and infrastructure development.

In my first term, we put Nigeria back on its feet. We are working again despite a difficult environment in oil on which we depend too much for our exports. We encountered huge resistance from vested interests who do not want CHANGE, But CHANGE has come... ~PMB
“Observing May 29 as #DemocracyDay delinks the country’s democratic experience since 1999 from the protracted and bitter struggle against military dictatorship from #June12, 1993, till the forced exit of the military in 1999” - @AsiwajuTinubu https://t.co/A2rPSojtxc

One of the problems we have in Nigeria is our non-ideological politics. We have to be ideological
