Former Senator, Shehu Sani has commended President Muhammadu Buhari for renaming the Abuja National Stadium after the winner of the June 12, 1993 presidential election MKO Abiola.
The President made this known while delivering a speech to mark the 2019 June 12 Democracy Day celebration at the Eagles Square in Abuja, Nigeria’s capital territory.
Reacting in a post on Twitter, Shehu Sani called on Buhari to renovate the National Stadium.
He wrote: “Renaming the National Stadium Abuja after Chief MKO Abiola is a great honour and commendable.
“Abiola was a pillar of sports, he deserves it.
“This should also be an opportunity to renovate and refurbish the arena for so long in a decrepit state.”
