All Progressives Congress (APC) has urged President Muhammadu to honour Kudirat, wife of MKO Abiola, the presumed winner of the June 12, 1993 presidential election.
APC spokesman, Bolaji Abdullahi, gave charge in a statement made available to us on Friday, June 8, 2018.
The APC commended President Buhari over the declaration of June 12 as Democracy Day and the subsequent conferment of the posthumous award of Nigeria’s highest national honour — Grand Commander of the Federal Republic.
The ruling party noted that Kudirat had paid the supreme price with her assassination in Lagos on June 4, 1996.
The APC wants Kudirat honoured as a ‘heroin of democracy’ for mobilizing Nigerians against the military rule that her husband’s mandate was not lost.
The APC also lauded the honour of Abiola’s running mate, Babagana Kingibe, and late human rights activist, Gani Fawehinmi (SAN) with the second highest national honour, Grand Commander of the Niger (GCON).
