Naija News reports that his reaction follows Muhammad Buhari‘s announcement of the change of name of the Abuja Stadium to Abiola Stadium; a development he (Buhari) announced on Wednesday, June 12, to honour the father of democracy, Chief MKO Abiola who had won the 1993 annulled election.
While reacting to the latest development honouring Abiola, the former Ekiti state governor, Ayodele Fayose had said; “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.”
Fayose who took to the micro-blogging site, Twitter to register his reactions against Obasanjo also got his response from Reno Omokri who also took to the same site to reaxt as thus; “I disagree with @GovAyoFayose that @MBuhari honouring Abiola is to Obasanjo’s shame.
“Who built the stadium Buhari named after MKO? Is it not Obasanjo? Abiola’s slogan was ‘farewell to poverty’.
“Between Obasanjo and Buhari, who bid farewell to poverty? Of course ObJ.”
