Ex-President, Olusegun Obasanjo has come out to blast the annulment of June 12, 1993, Presidential election, won by late philanthropist, Chief Moshood Kashimawo Abiola.

He recently revealed this at the 46th President Party of Abeokuta Club held on Sunday in Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital.

According to him, if not for bad belle, Abeokuta would have produced the president of Nigeria three times, because the region is a breeding atmosphere for leaders.

He then thanked the club for the honour being bestowed on him and his school mate, MKO Abiola, which he also richly deserved for his impact in politics.

His words, “When Abeokuta Club was in the process of being birthed, things in Abeokuta were not as rosy as they are today. And the sons of Abeokuta who were in Lagos put their heads together in late Chief Sobo Sowemimo’s house to think of what they could do to improve the development of Abeokuta as a city. I pay tributes to all those founding members, those who have departed this world and those who are still here.”

“I want to thank the club for this honour being bestowed on me and the honour being bestowed on my school mate, MKO Abiola which he richly deserved.”

“Kabiyesi, the Alake of Egbaland alluded to it. Normally when you win a cup three times, you keep that cup. Isn’t it? If not for bad belle, Abeokuta would have produced President of Nigeria three times, in which case, we should have kept it permanently.”

“But be that as it may, we have a great heritage. And we should be proud of our heritage. On this note, I will say on this occasion, I thank the President, the patron and grand patron, members of Board of Trustees, the executive. I want to say this, I will continue to contribute my quota to the development and growth of this club and by extension, the development and growth of Abeokuta, of Ogun State, of Nigeria, of African and indeed the of world in whichever way I could.”
