Moshood Kashimawo Abiola won the mandate of the people on June 12, 1993, when Nigerians of all walks of life shunned religious and ethnic affiliations to cast their votes for him.

However, the election, which is still regarded as the freest and fairest in Nigeria, was annulled by the then military president, General Ibrahim Babangida.

Recall that President Muhammadu Buhari announced on Wednesday, June 6, 2018, that June 12 would be celebrated as the new Democracy Day.

Following the declaration, the president posthumously awarded Chief Moshood Abiola, the adjudged the winner of the cancelled June 12, 1993 election, the highest Honour in the land, GCFR.

Also, about a year after the declaration, the president on Monday, June 10, signed the Public Holiday Amendment Bill into law.

The new law, according to the president's senior special assistant on National Assembly Matters (Senate), Ita Enang, allows public holiday to be declared on June 12 every year, while May 29 is to be a handing-over date and working day.
