The Ogun State government has thanked President Muhammadu Buhari for honouring late MKO Abiola – the presumed winner of the June 12, 1993 presidential election.

The government noted that by conferring the highest posthumous award of the land, Grand Commander of the Order of the Federal Republic (GCFR), on Abiola, the President has shown that he is a man that believes in Justice.

President Buhari had conferred the honour on the late businessman on Wednesday and also declared June 12 as Nigeria’s new Democracy Day.

Hours later, the government commended the development in a statement by the Secretary to the Ogun State Government, Mr Taiwo Adeoluwa.
