June 12 Not Enough To Be Declared Democracy Day

Former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar has stated that it is not enough to declare June 12, Democracy Day. He stated that while it is celebratory and commendable, the declaration of June 12 as Democracy Day encapsulates and symbolizes the struggle to find solutions to many national problems.

Atiku in a statement also said the significance of the celebration of June 12, 1993 presidential election is a reminder of Nigeria’s history to becoming a democratic country.
According to him, on that day being 26 years ago, the collective decision by Nigerians to elect democracy on that day was not to aggrandize the political elite or to replace military dictatorship with civilian autocracy.
