Obasanjo Reveals Why Babangida Annulled June 12 Election .

 Former President Olusegun Obasanjo on Sunday, April 11 attributed the annulment of June 12, 1993, presidential election presumably won by late philanthropist, Moshood Kashimawo Abiola by former Military President General Ibrahim Babangida on “bad belle.”


 Obasanjo said the annulment robbed Egbaland and Ogun state the rare privilege of having three of its prominent sons occupying the number one seat at different times. 

Apart from Obasanjo, Chief Ernest Shonekan, a former Head of Interim National Government is another ex-Nigerian leader from Ogun state. 

He made the comment in Abeokuta, the Ogun state capital shortly after his investiture as a trustee of the Abeokuta Club, a sociocultural organisation of the Egba people. Obasanjo was honoured alongside MKO Abiola who was awarded a posthumous vice-patron of the club.
