Breaking: Senate Mandate INEC to Announce June 12 Results
The Senate is asking the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to declare the results of the June 12, 1993 presidential election.
The lawmakers made the request on Thursday during plenary at the upper chamber of the National Assembly in Abuja, the nation’s capital.
The request comes a day after President Muhammadu Buhari declared June 12 to replace May 29 as Democracy Day, in honour of late MKO Abiola – the presumed winner of the election.
President Buhari explained that June 12 was more symbolic to our democracy compared to May 29 and also conferred a posthumous GCFR award to MKO Abiola.
