President Buhari renames Abuja National stadium after MKO Abiola


Nigerian President, Muhammadu Buhari has renamed the national stadium in Abuja after MKO Abiola.

The new declaration was announced by the President while giving a speech at the Democracy Day celebration which held at the Eagles Square on Wednesday, June 12.

He said, “Today, I propose the renaming of the Abuja National stadium henceforth, it will be called Moshood Abiola National stadium”.

Buhari also spoke about what must be done to atone for the wrongs done leading to the annulment of the June 12 election.

“As we all know, correcting injustice is a pre requisite for peace and unity; as part of the processes of healing and reconciliation, I approved the recognition of June 12 as democracy day and invested the late chief Abiola and Babagana Kingibe with national honours as I did with late chief Gani Fawehinmi, the purpose was to partially atone for the trivial damage done in annulling the presidential elections of that year,” Buhari said.

Chief Moshood Kashimawo Olawale Abiola, GCFR was a Nigerian Yoruba businessman, publisher, politician and aristocrat of the Yoruba Egba clan, he was the Aare Ona Kankafo of the Yoruba land. M. K. O. Abiola, ran for the presidency in 1993, and is widely regarded as the presumed winner of the inconclusive election since no official final results were announced till date.
