As the nation celebrates its democracy, the Nigerian Youth Parliament has described the late Chief MKO Abiola as memorable.
The Nigerian Democracy day was moved to June 12 in honour of the late sage who was believed to have won the 1993 presidential election. The 1993 election has been adjudged to be Nigeria’s freest and fairest elections.
The Chief Whip of the Parliament, Akinoso Olusesi, who spoke with Newsmen in Abeokuta said that Nigeria would have experienced a more solid development if the election wasn’t annulled.
“The annulment of the June 12 election hindered the steady progress that the country was looking forward to while casting the votes in the ballot. It led to protests and political unrest
“Hopes were high, the vision was clear, and the people’s decision was expressed at the ballot.
“The legacy of late Chief MKO Abiola will always be remembered. We will remember him for the values he fought and died for.
He called on Nigerian youths to remember the sacrifices of the late sage for a better Nigeria that we currently enjoy
