President Muhammadu Buhari on Tuesday in Abuja offered unreserved apology on behalf of the Federal Government to the family of MKO Abiola, over the annulment of June 12, 1993 election, presumably won by late Abiola.
The President apologised at the Special National Honours Investiture and award presentation to heroes of June 12, 1993 poll, which was annulled by the defunct Ibrahim Babangida regime.
He said the decision to hold the event was not to open old wounds but to bury negative sides of June 12 and its ill-feelings, hatred, frustrations and agony.
He, therefore, called on all Nigerians across national divides to accept the annulment of the June 12, 1993 poll in good faith.
President Buhari asked for a minute silence in honour of late MKO Abiola and those that lost their lives in the struggle for the actualisation of June 12
