President Muhammadu Buhari has said the role late Kudirat Abiola played in fighting for the actualization of her husband’s mandate is well documented .
He stated this in a message he sent to the launching of Kudirat Abiola Peace Foundation Sabon Gari – Zaria, held at Kongo Conference Hotel.
Represented by Chairman Revenue Mobalization and Fiscal Commission, Honourable. M. B. Shehu, he said her martyroom for that cause though painful, has watered the tree of democracy for over two decades.
According to him, the journey of June 12 has symbolized the journey towards civilian rule and democratic governance cannot be talked about without mentioning Kudirat Abiola’s name.
President Buhari said it is quite interesting to know that Kudirat Abiola was born in Zaria.
In his speech, the Chairman of the Foundation, Alhaji Jamiu Abiola, said they have gone far, no going back and by Allah’s wisdom, no human can change it.
Alh. Jamiu condemned agitators for the seperation of Nigeria by some section of the country.
According to him, “to solve Nigeria”s problems, we must realize and accept ourselves.”
He said, Kudirat Foundation is aimed at supporting govrnment instead of allowing government alone pursue peace and unity.
