Speaking to Punch, Lamido stated that Kingibe betrayed June 12, adding that he does not deserve the honour.

He said: “If I become the President, I will put it in proper perspective. I will go into the archive and bring out the genuine results and if Abiola is the winner, I will call INEC to announce the results and I will then go through the process and make sure we pay the N 45bn he was owed because that was the main thing they said led to the annulment.

“I will withdraw the honour given to Babagana Kingibe, because he doesn’t deserve it.

“He betrayed June 12 and followed his kinsman (Abacha), going by the tribal bond, to undermine June 12. They picked Abiola and locked him up.”
