IBB HAS APOLOGISED TO THE FAMILY! MKO Abiola’s daughter Tundun reveals [Videos]


Tundun Abiola

Tundun Abiola, daughter of the late Chief Moshood Kashimawo Abiola has revealed that former military dictator, Ibrahim Babangida, has apologized to her family in private.

She said IBB had claimed that his life was threatened adding that “certain factors told him(IBB) that Abiola must never become Commander in Chief of this country”.

Tundun made this revelation during a recent interview on Rubbin Minds with Ebuka Obi-Uchendu. Tundun said,

“IBB has actually apologised 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.”

Tundun also reacted to a statement by Senator Dino Melaye who cautioned President Buhari against conferring the honour of Grand Commander of the Federal Republic on MKO.

Tundun described his comments as “laughable” adding that people like her father gave their lives for Melaye to stand in the Senate and talk “such rubbish”.

She said,

“I thought it was a laughable statement, but I’m really happy that Dino Melaye can stand in the Senate and make laughable statements. People like my father gave their lives for Dino Melaye to stand in the Senate and talk such rubbish, quite frankly.

“If we were still under the military, would he be able to do that? This is the beauty of democracy. Any honour that can be given should be given, and he is a Nigerian. It holds no water, Dino Melaye’s argument.

“He has every right to make an argument, this is the role of the opposition in a robust democracy and he’s doing that, but, for goodness’ sakes, let the argument be logical and sensible.

“Is he going to propose that somebody like Awolowo who’s also a GCFR holder should be stripped of his title because he’s died? I mean, it’s ridiculous…”

Recall that Melaye had said,

“I am a Democrat, I believe very sincerely that Chief M.K.O Abiola deserves even more than the president has pronounced because he is a true patriot, philanthropist and should be so decorated.

“But Mr. President, we are governed in the country by the constitution and extant laws. No matter how beautiful a situation is, the law of the land remains the law of the land.”

The lawmaker mentioned a section of the law which he claims buttresses his point.

Subsection 2 of the act says a person shall be eligible for appointment to any rank or holder unless he is a citizen of Nigeria. A dead man is not a citizen of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. We should not be emotional about this. The law remains the law.”
