Public Holidays In Month Of June In Nigeria

  1. June 12: The June 12 Public holiday was necessitated to Commemorates the return to Democracy in Nigeria.

June 12 is a day set aside in Nigeria to mark the Democracy Day in Nigeria, as well as celebrate Moshood Kashimawo Abiola. Every June 12, the President is expected to address the Nation through a broadcast network as President Muhammadu Buhari will also address Nigeria, come June 12.

Brief History Behind the June 12 Holiday In Nigeria

The 1993 Nigerian presidential election held on 12 June 1993 in the Nigerian Third Republic, the first since the 1983 military coup ended the country’s Second Republic. The elections were the outcome of a transitional process to civilian rule spearheaded by the military ruler, Ibrahim Badamasi Babangida (IBB).

The unofficial result of the election – though not declared by the National Electoral Commission (NEC) – indicated a victory for Moshood Kashimawo Olawale Abiola of the Social Democratic Party (SDP), who defeated Bashir Tofa of the National Republican Convention (NRC).

The winner of the election was thus never declared as the elections were annulled by IBB, citing electoral irregularities.

The annulment led to protests and political unrest, including the resignation of IBB and a weak interim civilian government, and culminated in the continuation of military rule in the country with Sani Abacha ascending to power as the military head of state via a bloodless coup later in the year.

June 12 in Nigeria is dedicated to celebrate Moshood Kashimawo Olawale Abiola, also known as MKO Abiola who is also referred to as the profounder of democracy in Nigeria, owing to the outcome of the June 12, 1993 election.

June 12: When Did Abiola Died?

This reliable online news platform understands that MKO Abiola as he is fondly called, died on 7 July 1998, the day he was due to be released from prison. His death was trailed by suspicious circumstances, while an official autopsy stated that Abiola died of heart attack, meanwhile, General Sani Abacha’s Chief Security Officer said Abiola was beaten to death.
