Yoruba should vote Buhari to honour my father – Abiola’s son | Nigerian News. Latest Nigeria News. Your online Nigerian Newspaper. f


Son of the winner of the annulled June 12, 1993 presidential election, Chief Moshood Abiola, Jamiu on Saturday urged the Yoruba to vote massively for President Muhammadu Buhari for honouring his father.

Jamiu, who is a member of the Directorate of Contact and Mobilisation of the Women and Youth Presidential Campaign Team, described Buhari as a detribalised leader.

Speaking with journalists in Lagos, Jamiu said Buhari should not be described anywhere as tribalistic, adding that if he was, he would not have honoured his father 25 years after the annulment of the election.

He urged the Yoruba to reelect Buhari on February 16 so as not to betray Abiola and his slain wife, Kudirat, in their graves.

He said, “People have to understand that any man that can honour a victory won by another man from another tribe is not a tribalist. If he was tribalistic, he would not have done what he did to M.K.O Abiola.

“Buhari had even said in the letter of honour that June 12 is more important than the Independence Day, Nigerians should understand that and I believe that the Yoruba that I know will not betray Chief M.K.O Abiola in his grave by voting against a man who honoured him.

“The Yoruba are known to appreciate and value anybody who genuinely does something good for them genuinely.’’

  1. Some people just talk as if their brain cells run on kerosene. Do how has honouring your father translated to good leadership or economic progress for Nigeria. Honouring your father was a political strategy to distract the public from OBJ's letter when wrote it. If actually wanted to honour your father, why did he have to wait nearly 3 years after taking office.

    Find a better campaign point and not dis demented notion.

  2. People living without thinking before making a statement, now Buhari is now ur father m.k.o Abiola, can u see ur comment just because of ur needs,..,ur made u rich, did u manage it well. I guess not
