Popular stand-up comedian and MC, Francis Agoda, popularly known as I Go Dye has called on President Muhammadu Buhari to prosecute Ibrahim Badamosi Babangida, who annulled June 12 election of 1993, which Late M.KO. Abiola won.
I Go Dye made his opinion known in an open letter to the President in commemoration of the new status of June 12 supplanting May 29th as the Democracy Day.
“The recent announcement on the June 12 issue cannot be complete without stating the final results of the elections. It is worthy to recall, just as Goodluck Jonathan gave room for a free and fair election by conceding defeat to you ,which is the greatest honour accorded him today, so will you be highly respected if you totally announce the outcome of the 1993 Presidential elections. This will be the biggest achievement of your administration in it’s fight against corruption.
“After the June 12 saga, majority of Nigerians lost hope in the electoral process and have found it extremely difficult to even collect their voters card or participate in elections. They have continued to live on the assumption that votes don’t count.
He concluded the letter by advising the President not to let another take the shine off him by completing what he had started.
“I appeal to Mr President, reminding him that millions of Nigerians, are anxiously waiting for him to direct INEC to finally declare MKO Abiola as the president-elect in the 1993 elections. Sir, do not allow this opportunity to pass you by, because if you don’t complete this issue, someone else will take the full honour in the nearest future to announce the results to Nigerians
“Take the pride; show that extraordinary bravery and write your name in the heart of the nation ,as the hero of our new democracy by declaring the winner once and for all,” the letter read.
