Bauchi State Governor Bala Mohammed has said that the contributions of the late Moshood Olawale Kashimawo (MKO) Abiola to attainment of democracy in Nigeria are exemplary and heroic.

Bala, in a statement yesterday by his spokesman, Ladan Salihu, said this year’s Democracy Day is “unique and significant” in a very special way, saying: “We praise the heroism and dynamism of the late M.K.O. Abiola for his exemplary contributions to the evolution of our democracy.”

He, therefore, said that Bauchi, being the incubation centre of politics in the country, would provide the exemplary leadership, which would be anchored on the finest democratic principles and practices of good governance, transparency and delivery.”
