Governor Dapo Abiodun of Ogun State has vowed to bring to reality in the state, the vision of the presumed winner of the June 12 , 1993 Presidential election, Moshood Kashimawo Olawale (MKO) Abiola.
Abiodun stated this on Wednesday during the June 12 anniversary commemoration and 2019 Democracy Day celebration, held at the MKO Abiola Stadium in Abeokuta, NAN reports.
The governor, represented by his deputy, Mrs. Noimot Salako-Oyedele, pledged to leave no stone unturned in his bid to bring equal level of socio-economic development to all the parts of the state.
He noted that the state government would create equitable society and enlarge opportunities for individuals and societal development which MKO Abiola stood and died for.
“It is important to situate the significance of June 12 presidential election in the proper context. The election was not just an ordinary election.
“It was an exercise in which Nigerians cast aside their religious, ethnic and other parochial sentiments to entrust the mantle of leadership of the country to a man who later paid the supreme price.
“I urge us all to make the sacrifice of MKO Abiola count as we continue to enthrone good governance for the benefit of the people,” he said.
