On June 6, 2018, former President Mohammadu Buhari declared June 12 the new Democracy Day. This was announced to commemorate the Democratic election of Chief Moshood Kashimawo Olawale Abiola on June 12, 1993, which was adjudged the freest and fairest elections in the history of Nigeria but was annulled by Gen. Ibrahim Gbadamosi Babangida(Rtd).
Chief MKO Abiola was detained after he declared himself the President of Nigeria. He later died after drinking a cup of tea during the negotiation of his release.
