As a Nigerian, I share the pains of other Nigerians all over the world who narrowly lost the June 12th presidential election to the Military junta under the self-imposed president, Ibrahim Babangida. Today is a reminder of the day we all thought the military took its last breathe in the country. If not for anything, we would have had democracy before 1999. One other painful aspect of the annulment was the eventual action of the then Military government that consequently led to the arrest and the detention of MKO Abiola, the acclaimed winner of the election.
