BREAKING: President Muhammadu Buhari Renames Abuja Stadium As Moshood Abiola National Stadium

President Muhammadu Buhari has renamed the national stadium in Abuja after MKO Abiola.
The President made the declaration while giving a speech at the Democracy Day celebration which held at the Eagles Square on Wednesday, June 12.
He said, “Today, I propose the renaming of the Abuja National stadium henceforth, it will be called Moshood Abiola National stadium”.
Buhari also spoke about what must be done to atone for the wrongs done leading to the annulment of the June 12 election.
“As we all know, correcting injustice is a free requisite for peace and unity; as part of the processes of healing and reconciliation, I approved the recognition of June 12 as democracy day and invested the late chief Abiola and Babagana Kingibe with national honours as I did with late chief Gani Fawehinmi, the purpose was to partially atone for the trivial damage done in annulling the presidential elections of that year,” Buhari said.


  1. It is very thoughtful of Mr President to av seemed it fit to name the stadium after Late Chief ( elected president) Moshood Kashimaawa Ologundudu Abiola. This is in recognition of his immeasurable role he played as pillar of sport in Africa. Chief and Former President Olusegun Obasanjo is indeed in the best position to have take this glory but he was too green with envy and shared jealousy during his regime. May God forgive him. Kudos to you President Mohammed Buhari for this giant stride. You have indeed right the wrong.
