ABEOKUTA - The eldest daughter of late Moshood Kashimawo Olawale (MKO) Abiola, Mrs. Lola Abiola-Edewor has described President Muhammadu Buhari's decision declaring June 12 as national holiday "as an act of uncommon courage" by honouring and immortalising her father.

Abiola-Edewor, in a statement titled: “JUNE 12 – President Muhammadu Buhari rekindles Nigeria’s Hope” issued on Friday, said with the honour done to the late business mogul,  Buhari has “officially laid to rest the ghost of the annulment of that election.”

According to her, the President by the gesture has signed a new democratic contract with the Nigerian people that he stands firmly with Democrats and democratic tenets thus denouncing autocracy and injustice.

Abiola-Edewor, a two-term House of Representatives member, applauded the National Assembly for the passage of the bill on June 12 into proposed by the executive.

She, however, implored the president to urgently address the security issues in the country, noting that it “had taken a very worrisome and dire dimension threatening our very existence.”

"I applaud the steps taken by the Federal Government to officially lay to rest the ghost of the annulment of that election by giving it a decent closure claiming that short of bringing my father back to life, the federal government under the amiable President Muhammadu Buhari have done equitable well honouring his memory.

“On behalf of the Abiola family, I, therefore, thanked the president, the federal government, the legislature for ratifying and passing into law the bill as proposed by the executive and indeed all Nigerians for keeping fate with the cause/struggle all of these years, particularly the civil society groups and of course NADECO.

“What President Muhammadu Buhari did was a show of uncommon courage, a trait which had always stood him out to the admiration of his supporters and admirers and that without a shadow of doubt by this singular action he has signed a new democratic contract with the Nigerian people that he stands firmly with Democrats and democratic tenets thus denouncing autocracy and injustice."
