On June 12, 1993, Nigeria, my beloved country made history when she conducted what was adjudged by both internal and external observers to be the freest and fairest presidential election in the history of the country. It was really an interesting experience for the people of the country. It was a complete vote of confidence for the winner of the election. More
For the first time in the history of election in the country, a south-western candidate won convincingly in the northern state of his only opposing candidate. The Christian community also gave massive support to a Muslim presidential candidate. Every region of the country gave complete support to a North-North presidential and vice-presidential candidates. It was indeed a massive support for the winner of the election. While reports of the results of the election came in unofficially from different quarters, the people of the country were already in jubilant mood expecting the election body of the country to formally announce the results of the election.
