Political Scientist, Lawyer Debate Whether Nigeria Should Mark June 12
Democracy in Nigeria has always generated mixed reactions; the proponents, those “against” and the indifferent ones. This mixed grill continues as regards the day that should be call “DEMOCRACY DAY”.
While the various schools of thought continue their debates, one is forced to ask if these dates are necessary for the benefits of democracy to be seen by all.
In this episode of Faceoff, a sociologist, Sam Olisah, advises that Nigerians should forget the events of June 12 1993 and move on with their lives while a lawyer Onyekachi Ubani opposed this view insisting that being the foundation of democracy, Nigeria should revisit the election that was adjudged freest and fairest in Nigeria.
