The former governor said with the recognition of June 12, Buhari has put the acclaimed winner of the election, MKO Abiola, on the map of the world which past presidents failed to do.

He urged the president to go further by honouring the then National Electoral Commission (NEC) Chairman, Prof. Humphrey Nwosu, for conducting the election which was largely regarded as the freest and fairest election in Nigeria.
