MKO Abiola’s daughter says Babangida has apologised ‘privately’ to her family over June 12 annulment


A daughter of the late MKO Abiola, Tundun has disclosed that former military Head of State, Ibrahim Babangida, IBB, has apologized to her family for the annulment of the June 12 presidential election by his junta.

The late Abiola, a business mogul in his lifetime, was the acclaimed winner of the election considered to be the freest and fairest election in Nigeria’s history.

Speaking on Channels Television, Tundun disclosed that the former military leader has actually apologized to the Abiola family.

According to Tundun, “IBB has actually apologized to the family. Personally, he has. Now IBB has said in public but stopped short of an apology in public that his life was threatened.

“He says he was told by certain factors that Abiola must never become Commander in Chief of this country. He was afraid. He has actually admitted that publicly.”
