Abdulmumuni, son of the late Chief MKO Abiola, has bemoaned the lack of progress in the country since 1993.
Speaking on the June 12 (Democracy Day) the late Alhaja Kudirat Abiola’s son lamented that the education and health sectors had collapsed.
President Muhammadu Buhari on Monday signed into law the Public Holiday (Amendment) Bill, making June 12 a public holiday in the country.
It also becomes the country’s official Democracy Day, replacing May 29, which hitherto was a public holiday.
The President took the decision to honour the presumed winner of the June 12, 1993 presidential election, MKO Abiola.
But Abdulmumuni said June 12 should be a day of national sober reflection for Nigerians as the “people are getting poorer and the poverty rate is increasing”.
