I remember my very dear Chairman, Bashorun Moshood Kashimawo Olawale Abiola, the 14th Aare Ona Kakanfo of Yorubaland and Publisher, Concord group of Newspapers who was murdered on this day, July 7, 1998 by the people he thought were his friends. Bashorun of Africa…..as we used to call you, May your great soul rest in perfect peace. May your murderers never find peace in this world and in the great beyond….Adieu, the President Nigeria never had……….You were so careful not to be a dead hero. But your own friends, the people you fed and kept with your riches succeeded in making you a dead hero……RIP Kashi.

Couldn’t help but visit Chief M.K.O Abiola’s graveyard to remember him 18yrs after his death. M.K.O helped us from tyranny in 1985, now we look up to God.

Wow, today in memory.

Exactly 18yrs ago, MKO Abiola died in detention.

The acclaimed winner of June 12 Presidential election under the platform of SDP died mysteriously after drinking a cup of tea while in detention, today’s democratic system of government can never be complete without mentioning his name.

May his soul continue to rest in peace. Amen
