June 12: Don’t Declare M.K.O Abiola President – Bode George Warns President Buhari


There have been calls urging President Muhammadu Buhari to make M.K.O Abiola president, who won the presumed winner of the June 12, 1993 presidential election.

Reacting to the report, former National Deputy chairman of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Bode George kicked against him.

According to him, despite President Buhari bearing the highest title in the country, Grand Commander of Federal Republic (GCFR), the move may result in a constitutional crisis.

Bode George went on to urged those behind it to avoid such.

He said:

“Why are people talking like this? Is President Buhari the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC)? So, President Buhari will now declare Abiola as a former President of Nigeria because he is President? We are throwing so many things into this issue.

“There are many bigger problems in this country. We are going to use that as a red letter day. Have we learnt any lessons from the fall-out of June 12? Those are things we should celebrate. What has happened has happened, can we reverse anything by saying they should declare Abiola as a former president?
