President Buhari Apologises To Families Who Lost Love Ones During June 12

The Federal Government yesterday tendered an apology to the family of Late MKO Abiola, the presumed winner of the 1993 presidential election and to those that lost their loved ones in the cause of the struggle.

Buhari who called for one-minute silence in honour of the memory of all those who lost their lives in the struggle of June 12 1993, said the retrospective and posthumous recognition was only a symbolic token of redress and recompense for the grievous injury done to the peace and unity of the country.

The apology was tendered by President Muhammadu Buhari while speaking at the  commemoration and investiture honouring the heroes of the election annulled by the military government of General Ibrahim Badamasi Babangida.

Buhari honoured the presumed winner of the 1993 presidential election, the late Chief Moshood Kashimawo Olawale Abiola, with the posthumous award of the Grand Commander of the Federal Republic (GCFR), his running mate, Baba Gana Kingibe and the late human rights lawyer, Gani Fawehinmi, were also honoured with the Grand Commander of the Order of the Niger (GCON).
