Abdulmumuni Abiola, son of Chief Moshood Kashimawo Olawale Abiola (MKO), has said he would support President Muhammadu Buhari’s second term bid, because honoured his late father.
MKO, the acclaimed winner of the 1993 presidential election, was honoured posthumously by President Buhari, 25 years after the 1993 election was annulled.
The younger Abiola, who spoke with journalists in Kwara State on Saturday, also said Nigeria is not ripe for a younger president.
He said: “I do believe that there shall be a time, just like in Canada and France, when we have somebody that is around 30 in power. I don’t just think that time is right. I think there is a reason why Buhari is there and I would want us to be patient to see him through. We should give him another four years and he will hand over power to the youth.
“I do not have anybody else to campaign for. Somebody after 20 years honoured my father, and did what other people refused to do. So, I am supporting Buhari for a second term.”
