June 12: Don't Resort To Any Protest, Abiodun Tells Ogun Residents


ABEOKUTA - Governor Dapo Abiodun of Ogun State has advised the people of Ogun State to shun the planned protest in the state, saying such could be hijacked by hoodlums and enemies of democracy who harbour ulterior motives.


The Governor in a press release signed by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr. Kunle Somorin, in Abeokuta, Friday, stated that June 12 is a day for the celebration of democracy and "we should not do anything to tarnish the day and what it stands for".


He called on the people of the State to celebrate June 12, Nigeria’s Democracy Day, peacefully and avoid any act that could threaten the security of the State and Country.


"M.K.O Abiola, the symbol of June 12 celebration abhorred violence. He was an apostle of peace. In fact his election had been adjudged as not only the freest, but the most peaceful", he noted.
