The Aare Ona Kakanfo of Yorubaland, Iba Gani Adams, on Tuesday said President Muhammadu Buhari’s resolution to recognise June 12 as Nigeria’s democracy is a very pleasant development.
He stated that the President Buhari deserves praise for this commendable decision, but he should take a step further by restructuring the country before the 2019 general election.
Adams tagged the decision to recognise June 12 as democracy day as huge Ramadan gift, he also revealed that this would win the president the hearts of progressive-minded Nigerians if he can carry out the restruction of the country before the election.
“I modestly appluad the decision. It is what we can call genuine reconciliation. As a Muslim, it is also a gift of Ramadan. Ramadan is a month of forgiveness, truth, fair play and loving othera the way you love yourself.
“While I laud the President for this historic decision of his, I also implore him to do more on the basis of restructuring the country before the election so that Nigeria can truly move forward.”
“If he can do justice on the issue of restructuring, Nigeria will not only move forward but if he continue in this direction, he will have the support of most progressive-minded Nigerians in future politics,” he said
