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.
A twitter user on sharing the video, wrote;
This was MKO Abiola speaking 25years ago about the issues of corruption, nepotism, opacity of the NNPC, over-dependence on oil, etc. 2&half decades later, we are still here, probably worse.
Those who clapped & stood with him then are the ones enslaving us today. #DemocracyDay

Nigerians must unite against the stagnation of the majority by a few as was in ‘93.
“We are one nation under God, or aren’t we?” #DemocracyDay
