June 12


Wonderful post and historical recollection by Yeye F. O.

This is not one of the stories that was fed to us, it is very recent history. Their case is not an isolated one – Nigeria has a long history of passive aggressive when it comes to politics, much more than we want to openly admit to. Even if people are not particularly clean-handed, should we continue to kill one another like rams?

On this day, 12th of June 1993 was an an important day in Nigeria political history, it was a day that presidential election was annulled by Ibrahim Babangida who was the sitting president at the time, the winner of the election was MKO Abiola.

It all started from annulment, the rest is history as MKO Abiola eventually died in prison for insisting that he won historical election and deserved to be announced as the president. His first wife Kudirat Abiola died in the struggle too.

This is Nigeria.
