Many years after his death, the name Mko Abiola has become a recurring decimal among, not only Nigerians, but the entire African continent as a whole.
Indeed a lot of articles, essays, papers and even books have been written on the enigma called Abiola, whose passion to touch the lives and soul of anyone he comes across with , has no equal
On June 6th 2018, President Muhammadu Buhari made history when he directed that effective 2019 Nigeria’s Democracy Day, marked every May 29 for the past 18 years, be shifted to June 12 to honour Moshood Abiola, the winner of the 1993 presidential election.
Election data showed Abiola won the polls but he was never formally declared winner
Abiola was later imprisoned by the Sani Abacha’s military regime as he struggled to actualise his mandate. He died in prison in 1998.
Successive governments have brushed aside calls for Abiola to be honoured and for the federal government to recognise June 12 as democracy day.
The Buhari government said Chief Abiola will now be conferred with nation’s highest honour, the Grand Commander of the Federal Republic, GCFR. The honour is exclusively conferred only on presidents and former presidents.
Now, as the Nation set to mark the historical day. An Abiola close ally, high chief Abimbola Moyosore Aboderin who will on that day present his long awaited book on Abiola & June 12 facts has commended PMB for such laudable gesture
" Abiola will be happy where he is,his name will live long, to be conferred with GCFR is not joke, we thank Nigerian Govt and may his legacies continue to glitter even in death " says the Moyosore of Yoruba land in an exclusive interview with Cerutti Media Group subsidiary platform, World industry leaders magazine
•Meanwhile, businessman and author , chief Aboderin has spoken of his ambition to reunite Nigeria and see us bury old political hatchets & seek : Unity. Peace & Progress ( UPP) via his new book on Democracy
Says he " I want to have this recorded for history.. This project is not all about money but humanity; it is aimed at clearing the air and point out all basic facts about June 12 election of 1993 and the philosophies of the man called Mko" chief Aboderin stated
