June 12: I give glory to God, says Kingibe


Baba Gana Kingibe

The running mate of the late Chief Moshood Abiola in the June 12, 1993 presidential election, Alhaji Babagana Kingibe, has said the Federal Government’s declaration of the day as Democracy Day was a great honour.

He also commended President Muhammadu Buhari for the announcement that national honour would be conferred on Abiola, acclaimed winner of the election, himself and late human rights lawyer, Chief Gani Fawehinmi.

Kingibe, currently in Saudi Arabia for the Lesser Hajj, however, declined further comment on the issues, telling the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on telephone that he preferred to concentrate on his religious rites for now.

“I really appreciate this. I will love to express my feelings, but right now, I am in Makkah praying to make peace with my Maker.

There will be time enough to share worldly thoughts with friends,” the former Secretary to Government of the Federal Government (SGF) said.
