Declare Abiola as Former President, Activist Tells Buhari, FG


A human rights activist and Executive Chairman, Centre for Human Rights and Social Justice (CHRSJ),  Adeniyi Alimi Sulaiman has urged the President Muhammadu Buhari led-federal government to recognise the presumed winner of the June 12, 1993 Presidential election,  Chief MKO Abiola as a former President of the country.

He argued that Abiola, his wife, Kudirat and other martyr laid down their lives for the enthronement of  the current democratic experiment in the land.

In a statement he signed to commemorate the 2017 June 12 anniversary,  he maintained that the non-recognition of Abiola since 1999, has been hurting the present political system, insisting that the only solution to the many political challenges currently facing the nation was to first give the acclaimed winner of that poll his rightful place in the country’s political history and development, adding that national emolument like the University of Abuja and the Eagle Square should be named after the late winner of June 12,1993 Presidential election.
