Leader of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in Delta State, Olorogun O’tega Emerhor has commended President Muhammadu Buhari’s sense of fairness, justice and courage in addressing the long overdue issue of honouring Chief MKO Abiola, his running mate, Alhaji Babagana Kingibe, other unsung heroes of democracy and the recognition of June 12 as the true Democracy day.
According to a statement signed by Emerhor made available to journalist, 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 bury their head like the ostrich in the sands of arrogance and political denial of the significance of the events of June 12.
The APC chieftain stated further 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 reestablished Nigeria as a nation that can be a beacon of hope and justice to all,” Emerhor stated.
Emerhor stressed that coming in the heel of the Buhari’s 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.
Noting that, “it is for these reasons that Deltans and Nigerians will certainly re-elect him for a second term in 2019.”
