Governor Abiodun: June 12 Presidential poll was not an ordinary election
Governor Dapo Abiodun has promised to work with the vision of late Moshood Kashimawo Olawale Abiola who was the acclaimed winner of the June 12, 1993 presidential election.
Deputy Governor, Noimot Salako-Oyedele represented the state’s numero uno at the June 12 commemoration and 2019 Democracy Day celebration, held at the MKO Abiola Stadium in Abeokuta on Wednesday.
Salako-Oyedele disclosed that their administration will ensure an equal level of socio-economic development across the state.
“It is important to situate the significance of the June 12 presidential election in the proper context. The election was not just an ordinary election,” the Deputy Governor was quoted as saying.
“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,”
