No Tradeoff Of Restructuring With Buhari’s June 12 – CDNDC
Notwithstanding the apologies tendered by President Muhammadu Buhari to the Abiola family over June 12, a pro-democracy group has said restructuring would remain the only basis for earning the support of the Southwest and other zones who have conceded to the idea.
The group, Coalition in Defence of Nigerian Democracy and Constitution (CDNDC) has also described the certificate bearing the GCFR honour conferred on Late M.K.O. Abiola as “deceptive,” and an improper way of honouring the dead.
The CDNDC in a statement by its Convener, Ariyo-Dare Atoye, also labeled as “disingenuous and shocking that the same leaders from the Southwest who had dissuaded the Abiola family from accepting a more befitting naming of University of Lagos after him, could return to persuade them to accept an honour on paper.
“First, we want to make it clear that there is no alternative to restructuring, because the proper struggle for the actualisation of the real June 12 had successfully gave rise to this noble idea, which is now the only way out of the false system that we operate.
“We want to state categorically that the politically sophisticated people of Southwest and other zones who have conceded to restructuring will not tradeoff the only option left for Nigeria with Buhari’s version of June 12.
