“Dear Nigerians, I am delighted to announce that, after due consultations, the Federal Government has decided that henceforth, June 12 will be celebrated as Democracy Day.
“We have also decided to award posthumously the highest Honour in the land, GCFR, to the late Chief MKO Abiola,” he said.
The politics of 2019, populism and a Greek gift. Less than 10days ago this same President declared May 29th Public Holiday (Democracy Day), so did the so-called wide consultation happen before or after? Interesting times ahead. Nigeria is beyond PMB, IBB and OBJ, may the discerning be circumspect. 
Buhari also conferred a posthumous GCFR title on the late Chief Moshood Abiola.
Late Abiola won the June 12, 1993 election which former President Ibrahim Babangida annulled.
The President, who noted in a tweet on his official handle that June 12 is a more symbolic day,
explained why June 12 will replace May 29.
According to Buhari, June 12 is more symbolic than May 29 or October as Democracy Day.
