Today is the 22nd annual commemoration of the annulled June 12, 1993 presidential election believed to have been won by late MKO Abiola. The entire election results were dubiously annulled by the military head of state Ibrahim Babangida.
We bring you Abiola’s top 7 quotes in remembrance of this special day.
1. Accept what God has given you and make the best use of it
2. If you go borrowing, you will go a sorrowing
3. It should not take the extreme measure of killing a new born child just because the midwife is a bad woman.
4. No one can give you power. It is yours. Take it!
5. From this day, show to the world that anyone who takes the people of Nigeria for fools is deceiving himself and will have the people to answer to.
6. People of Nigeria, our time is now. You are the repository of power in the land.
7. There is no humiliation I have not endured, no snare that has not been put in my path, no “setup” that has not been designed for me in my endeavour to use the path of peace to enforce the mandate that you bestowed on me.
