The Maritime Workers Union of Nigeria ( MWUN), under the leadership of Comrade, Pince Adewale Adeyanju, has rejoiced with Nigerians and the Federal Government under the presidency of Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu GCFR, President and Commander – In – Chief of Nigerian Armed Forces on the occasion of Nigeria’s Democracy Day.

His assertions : “Recall that Democracy Day in Nigeria was informed by the annulment of June 12, 1993 election, where Chief Moshood Kashimawo Abiola (MKO), won the election of that year in a landslide victory under the Military Presidency of Gen. Ibrahim Badamosi Babangida (IBB).

“Sadly, Babangida annuled what was adjudged the fairest, free and widely acclaimed best election in Nigeria and the entire global community amidst international observers, who came to witness the election.

“Today, Abiola has been greatly honoured and has become a matyr and a symbol of democracy in the country, given to the understanding of the immediate past administration of President Muhammadu Buhari, who made June 12th a nation wide holiday”.

He enthused:  “However, Kudos must be given to Buhari for recognising what Chief Abiola represents, as far as democracy is concerned, especially to Nigeria and Nigerians.

“In this regard, on behalf of my entire executives in the Maritime Workers Union, we celebrate with Nigeria and its teeming resilient citizens, who have come this far in upholding what June 12, known as democracy day means, which has become a reality in celebrating an uninterrupted democracy since 1999.

“On this note, once again, the Union wishes the nation, Nigeria, a happy Democracy Day”.
