2015: MKO Abiola’s wife eyes Lagos governorship seat


mko_abiolaMrs Modupe Onitiri-Abiola, one of the wives of the late Chief M.K.O. Abiola, on Friday declared her intention to contest the 2015 governorship election in Lagos State.

Onitiri-Abiola, wife of the acclaimed winner of the annulled June 12, 1993 presidential elections, however, did not mention the party’s platform on which she would contest.

She said that her motive of seeking the votes of the electorate was to assist in the eradication of poverty.

Onitiri-Abiola said that she worked with her late husband in the struggle for the actualisation of the June 12 elections annulled by the military regime of former President, General Ibrahim Babangida (rtd) in 1993.

She said that the country needed to start practising true democracy at all levels of government to meet the yearnings and aspirations of Nigerians.

The aspirant said if she became successful at the polls, poverty eradication would be the focus of her government.

She said that the same issue should be the major concern of government at all levels.
