MKO Abiola

Publisher of Ovation Magazine, Dele Momodu, has stated that Nigeria died on June 12, 1993, when the presidential election was annulled by the military administration of General Ibrahim Babangida.

Speaking at the unveiling of his books, Momodu said the only reason Nigeria won’t be fighting another war is that, “God is a Nigerian.”

He said: “Nigeria died the day they annulled June 12 elections. On that day, there was no discrimination; we all wanted a Nigeria where everyone was a Nigerian, all that died that day.

“Right now, we have leaders who have never made anything of themselves, what can they possibly give?

“If MKO were here, he would be disappointed because what he laboured all his life for, the unity of Nigeria, is being taken for granted.

“We do not value the unity we have, however, we should bear in mind that the price of war is more expensive than the price of peace. Fortunately, God is a Nigerian and we will not go to war.”
