The country must remember June 12 as we get nearer to election time once more. The spirit it epitomizes is what we need to remember once more as we choose another leader at this time. Every leader has got his own faults none of us is perfect; we are mortals with big dreams. As we head to the next crucial election in Nigeria’s history let us remember MKO Abiola, his wife Kudirat and the sacrifice which they paid to give us this democracy. Their death should not be in vain. MKO was a true Nationalist, a Pan-Africanist. His credential in this regard was further illustrated when he joined the NCNC instead of the more regionally heeled AG. He was a torn on the side of the Western World as well as a formidable proponent of reparation. It can be argued that one of the ideas for which he was killed can also be linked to his vision of reparation for all the plunder and resource “rape” carried out by the West against Africa and Africans. The West did not want him as leader of the most powerful African country potentially while preaching reparation.
well enough on the work and sacrifice of this great man. As we head into the next election let us remember MKO and go out in mass and cast our votes in remembrance of June 12 and the dream of a liberal progressive Nigeria. We owe that much to ourselves and to MKO. We must immortalize this man and the principle he has come to represent. We must build a statue of him right in front of Aso Rock so that our leaders may remember that the democracy we desire has been and can only be sustained by individual sacrifices. MKO is a hero.
