Buhari renames Abuja National Stadium to Moshood Abiola National Stadium

Abuja National stadium

President Muhammadu Buhari on Friday, June 12, renamed the Abuja National Stadium to the MOSHOOD ABIOLA NATIONAL STADIUM.

“Today, I propose the re-naming of the Abuja National Stadium. Henceforth it will be called MOSHOOD ABIOLA NATIONAL STADIUM,” Buhari said in his Democracy Day speech.

According to the president, correcting injustice is necessary for peace and unity. He noted that he approved the recognition of June 12 as Democracy Day and conferred National Honours on late Chief MKO Abiola and his deputy, Babagana Kingibe, as part of the reconciliation and healing process.

Buhari noted that the purpose was to partially atone for the annulment of the Presidential Elections won by Abiola and Kingibe in 1993.
