JUNE 12 AGITATIONS: BUHARI TO HONOUR MORE NIGERIANS

The Secretary to the Government of the Federation, SGF, Boss Mustapha, on Tuesday disclosed that President Muhammadu Buhari has given approval for some other Nigerians to be conferred with national honours for their contributions to democracy.

Recall that the President had, in the statement he personally signed on June 6, 2018, asserted that June 12, 1993, the date of a presidential election considered to be the fairest in Nigeria’s history, “was far more symbolic of democracy in the Nigerian context than May 29 or even October 1”. 

Speaking on Tuesday, Mustapha, however, did not disclose the identities of the fresh awardees.

“Further announcement on this will be made shortly,” Mustapha said in his welcome address at the ceremony attended by dignitaries across the country.
