Speaking while receiving political delegates from Ogun state, the home town of the late business mogul and politician, Buhari said Abiola wanted nothing but a solid Nigeria and nothing else.

“If MKO Abiola was allowed to rule, the religious and tribal issues now in Nigeria would not have been as strong because he ran on a Muslim-Muslim ticket, chose his deputy from Kanuri, a minority tribe, and because of his personality, he went across Nigeria and was accepted.

“He used his resources and energy to convince Nigerians that all he wanted was a solid Nigeria and nothing else.”
