June 12: Emerhor lauds Buhari for upholding fairness and justice

THE leader of the All Progressives Congress, (APC) in Delta State, Olorogun O’tega Emerhor, has commended President Muhammadu Buhari for upholding fairness and justice over the recognition of June 12 as the true Democracy Day.

The former governorship aspirant further lauded Buhari for exuding the courage to address a long-overdue issue of honouring Chief MKO Abiola, his running mate, Ambassador Babagana Kingibe, Gani Fawehinmi and other unsung heroes of democracy.

In a statement signed by Chief Emerhor and made available to journalists in Warri, on Saturday, he said; “President Buhari has, by this singular act, established himself as a fearless progressive, a true democrat and a man with a true sense of history and justice.

He added that “President Buhari has brought to an end an era where previous presidents buried their heads like the ostrich in the sands of arrogance and political denial of the significance of the events of June 12.

He noted that “Buhari didn’t just honour the Abiolas, the Kingibes, the Ganis and those heroes that died in the streets of Nigeria, but he has, indeed, re-established Nigeria as a nation that can be a beacon of hope and justice to all.”

The APC chieftain stressed that coming on the heels of the Buhari-led government unmatched war on corruption, his giant strides in infrastructural development and his tenacity in pulling the economy out of recession, the President has distinguished himself as a President of the people.

“It is for these reasons that Deltans and Nigerians will certainly re-elect him for a second term in 2019,” he averred.
