June 12: MKO Abiola Speaking Against Corruption 25 Years Ago, Nigerians React by Gossipninja: 8:39am On Jun 12
In celebration of Nigeria’s democracy day, here is an enlightening video of MKO Abiola speaking about the issues of corruption, nepotism, pacity of the NNPC, others 25 years ago.


In a video making rounds online, we noticed that those who cheered as he promised an end to tyranny & corruption are today cheering tyranny, looting & impoverishing our citizens.

MKO Abiola with full name Chief Moshood Kashimawo Olawale Abiola, was a Nigerian Yoruba businessman, publisher, politician who ran for the presidency in 1993, for which the election results were annulled by the preceding military president Ibrahim Babangida because of allegations that they were corrupt and unfair.

Abiola was a great man, a man loved by all and sundry. its quite unfortunate that babangida's military junta never allowed his dream of ruling the country see the light of the day

When Channels was channels

MKO Abiola spoke very well.

AD, ACN, ANPP, CPC and APC are offshoot of that SDP principle. In fact the current government derived some of its initiatives from Abiola. He was a man of vision.

But useless three month old Senator Tinubu does not have anything upstairs to match this character. angry angry embarassed

I am doing a small research to see how Tinubu has plagarised Abiola's speeches and thoughts in recent memory.

Y'all hailing, should do well to go find the speeches given during the 1983 and 1985 military coups that brought in Buhari and Babangida, and do not forget who was alleged to have sponsored one of these coups at least.

To get a lil idea check out my blog in the signature.

More like the Nigeria people.

Problem was a large segment of Nigerians...from the North, but also from the East and West...did not want to see MKO as president because Nigerians then did not understand that a democracy has winners and losers.

So they collaboed with the millitary...and we ended up with Abacha for five hard years.

One sees the same attitude today. Someone loses an election...it was rigged. Even when the facts on the ground show that it was not rigged.

Let's be honest...MKO was just as corrupt as many others were...but the lesson of June 12 is that democracy means that when you lose...try harder at the enxt election.

Like now...APC and PDP ....I don't like them. I wish we had another party win this year. But that's democracy. Most Nigerians voted for these two failed parties. I can't do anything about it...so I accept it, move on and work for another time.

Not be calling for a coup.

It's like this corruption in Nigeria has defied every possible solution. I can't beat my chest and say Abiola woulda solved it.

I love MKO Abiola as a person but you can not extricate him from the corruption of the then military junta of the Murtala, Buhari and Babangida era.

if most of y'all definition of corruption is what it is, then everybody is corrupt. everybody has his/her price, it only takes conscience to see good and do good.
