Nigeria: Time to Bury June 12

Why is it time for Nigeria to bury June 12?: “June the Twelfth, 1993 has for years been marked as the day that Nigeria’s hopes for democracy died or as Sir Abubakar Tafawa Balewa would have so eloquently put it when he made his speech [1] as Prime Minister of a newly independent Nigeria, our claims to responsible government were rubbished.”
