“Declare Abiola president” – MKO’s kinsmen urge President Tinubu

The kinsmen of Moshood Kashimawo Olawale Abiola from Gbagura in Abeokuta, Ogun State, have urged President Bola Tinubu to declare the late politician a democratically elected president.

The kinsmen from the Tobade Progressive Club of Gbagura stated this on Wednesday in a statement signed by its president, Chief Shamwill Keshinro.

They stressed the need to revisit the 1993 presidential election, adding that the late MKO Abiola and hundreds of Nigerians had greatly sacrificed for the return of democracy in 1999.

“Tobade Progressive Club of Gbagura, which is populated with kinsmen and kinswomen of Chief MKO Abiola in Gbagura, Abeokuta, Ogun State Capital, is therefore asking the Federal Government to invoke the Doctrine of Necessity to begin the political and legal process of declaring Chief MKO Abiola, a democratically-elected President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria,” they said.

The Buhari administration had conferred posthumously on MKO Abiola the highest national honour of Grand Commander of the Federal Republic, GCFR.

They, however, stressed that the move by former President Muhammadu Buhari suggested a political journey to pronounce and swear in post-humously, Chief MKO Abiola, as the democratically-elected president of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
