The Ogun State government has assured that it would continue to liaise with relevant authorities to ensure that the late acclaimed winner

of the June 12, 1993, presidential election, Chief Moshood Kashimawo Olawale Abiola, is immortalised by the Federal Government.

The Secretary to the State Government, Taiwo Adeoluwa, gave the assurance at a meeting with representatives of the family in his office in Abeokuta, on Wednesday.

He had submitted that “Abiola deserves the honour and recognition because he paid the supreme price for the emergence of democratic rule in the country.”

He said apart from monuments, including the June 12 Cultural Centre, Abeokuta and the Moshood Abiola Polytechnic, named after the late business mogul, who touched many lives positively during his lifetime, the government believes that the late politician deserves more honours from the Federal Government.

The state scribe said that the Amosun administration had consistently celebrated the June 12 anniversary in appreciation of the legendary contributions of Abiola to democratic development in the country, adding that government would continue to accord his family deserved recognition.

He said, “Since we came on board, every June 12, we do have a formal interaction with the family of Chief M.K.O Abiola. This is an exercise by the state government to sustain people’s awareness and keep the memory of the late sage alive.”

Also speaking, daughter of the late politician who is the Special Adviser to the Governor on Trade and Investment, Mrs. Hafsat Abiola-Costello, acknowledged the contributions of the State Governor, Senator Ibikunle Amosun, to the family, emphasising that his relationship with the family predates his emergence as governor.
