Fayose Declares June 12 Public Holiday

Ayodele Fayose, Ekiti State Governor, has declared June 12 public holiday in honour of late MKO Abiola, winner of the June 12, 1993 presidential election. Fayose, in a statement issued on Sunday in Ado-Ekiti, said the decision was to join other colleagues in the South West, who had, yesterday, declared Monday public holiday.

“Yoruba nation’s interest is beyond personal interest of anyone. For us to forge ahead as a people, we must speak with one voice.

“In the light of this, I declare Monday a public holiday to further strengthen our collective belief, hope and aspirations. This, I have done in the spirit of Yoruba nation and South West integration.”

Ogun, Ondo, Osun and Oyo states had earlier declared Monday a public holiday in commemoration of the 24th anniversary of the annulment of the 1993 election, described by observers as the freest and fairest election in the history of Nigeria.
