Former President Olusegun Obasanjo on Sunday broke his silence over the annulment of the June 12, 1993 presidential election presumably won by late business mogul, Moshood Kashimawo Abiola.

Obasanjo, who said Abiola was his school mate at the Baptist Boys High School, Abeokuta, lamented that the cancellation of June 12 election had robbed of Egbaland the rare opportunity to have three of its prominent sons occupy the seat of the president at different times.

The former president made this known in Abeokuta during the investiture of Obasanjo as a Trustee of the Abeokuta Club, a socio-cultural organisation of Egba people of Ogun State.

The late business mogul was also awarded a posthumous vice patron of the club during its 46th President Party held at the secretariat in Abeokuta.

According to Obasanjo, Abiola richly deserved the award bestowed on him by the Abeokuta Club.

Obasanjo who was apparently referring to former Head of Interim National Government, Chief Ernest Shonekan, himself who ruled Nigeria, first, as a military Head of State and later two-time civilian president, noted that Abiola would have become the third, if 1993 poll was not cancelled.

He said “I want to thank the (Abeokuta) club for this honour being bestowed on me and the honour being bestowed on my school mate MKO Abiola which he richly deserved.

Obasanjo pledged his commitment to the development of the club, Ogun State, Nigeria and the world.

Earlier, the Alake of Egbaland, Oba Adedotun Gbadebo while presenting the plague to Obasanjo, described Obasanjo and MKO Abiola as proud sons of Abeokuta.
