Nigerian Twitter React To Buhari Renaming Abuja Stadium After MKO Abiola

Mixed reactions have trailed Nigeria president Muhammadu Buhari’s decision to rename the Abuja National Stadium after the late Moshood Kashimawo Olawale (MKO) Abiola, winner of the annulled June 12, 1993, presidential election.

“Today, I propose the renaming of the Abuja National Stadium,” Buhari said this during his Democracy Day speech at the Eagle’s Square, Abuja.

“Henceforth it will be called the Moshood Abiola National Stadium.”

As per usual, the ever-vocal Nigerian Twitter has weighed in on the subject with some giving kudos to President Buhari for deeming it fit to rename the stadium after Abiola, who was once named Africa’s pillar of sport.
