A Senior Advocate of Nigeria, Femi Falana, on Tuesday, said President Muhammadu Buhari has announced the result of the annulled June 12, 1993, presidential election.

Falana, who was one of the invited guests at the Special National Honours Investiture held, on Tuesday, in Abuja said this is due to the honour which President Muhammadu Buhari has bestowed Moshood Abiola.

“Mr President, we want to thank you very tremendously for recognising June 12. Some people are saying you should declare the result, you have declared the result.

“We now know the winner of that election officially, who is now being honoured with the order of GCFR reserved for Heads of Government in Nigeria.

“Before this regime, we have had seven governments that pretended that June 12 never existed. In the words of Abiola, we were clapping with one hand, today, we are clapping with two hands,” he said.

The Human Rights activist, however, called on President Buhari to ensure Nigerians bid farewell to poverty, a mission which late Abiola deeply desire.

“Mr President, we want you to engage Nigerians to wage a meaningful fight against poverty in this country. We have enormous resources to make every Nigerian happy,” he said.

He also urged President Buhari to direct security chiefs to restore the rights of all Nigerians calling for an end to incessant killings in some regions of the country.
