Late MKO Abiola

June 12 every year is set aside by many Nigerians to celebrate and remember the life of late Moshood Kashimawo Olawale Abiola popularly called M.K.O Abiola.

This day 24years ago, the presidential election in which M.K.O Abiola was a candidate was annulled over alleged evidence that it was corrupt and unfair.

He is still referred to as the winner by many since there was no official announcement of the results.

M.K.O Abiola died in 1998 at age 60 on July 7.

Political leaders and the general public have taken to their social media platforms to remember the day.

    Atiku Abubakar is right, the federal government should immortalise the acclaimed winner of the June 12 Presidential Election, Chief MKO Abiola.
