Governor of Bauchi, Bala Mohammed has described the late MKO Abiola, winner of the June 12, 1993 presidential election, as “the most acceptable democrat” in Nigeria.
Mohammed spoke in Gamawa LGA of the state during the distribution of empowerment items to youths and women under the Kaura Economic Empowerment Programme (KEEP).
“Our launching of this empowerment programme today is historic and passionate; we remember today is democracy day and we decided to do it on this day,” Mohammed said.
“This is because Chief Moshood Abiola, who we are celebrating, empowered several people.
“He did that across board without considering the religion, language and origin of those that benefited from the gestures.
“Abiola will remain in our memory as the most acceptable democrat or politician in Nigeria.
“We all voted for him and that is why myself, my deputy and the government decided honour to him this day by coming to Gamawa and Zaki to empower the people.”
