June 12: Fayose slams Obasanjo, commends Buhari for honouring MKO Abiola

Former governor of Ekiti State , Ayodele Fayose , on Thursday , said that the ego of the former president , Olusegun Obasanjo stopped him from honouring the presumed winner of the June 12 , 1993 presidential election , MKO Abiola , while he was in office .

On his verified Twitter handle , Fayose said , Obasanjo was the biggest beneficiary of the 1993 election , yet failed to honour Abiola.
He tweeted , “ Honouring MKO Abiola by
@ MBuhari is to Obasanjo ’ s shame . It remains a sore- point of his political history that because of ego , Obasanjo , who ’ s the greatest beneficiary of the June 12 , 1993 struggle failed to honour his kinsman , MKO Abiola . So, I commend President Buhari . ”President Muhammadu Buhari had last year recognised June 12 as Nigeria’ s Democracy Day, as well as giving national honours to him posthumously .

On Wednesday during the maiden celebration of the National Democracy Day on June 12 , Buhari renamed the National Stadium after the late Abiola .
