Atiku Abubakar, a former Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, presidential candidate, has said Nigerians are enjoying democracy now due to the sacrifices of MKO Abiola’s late wife, Kudirat.

Atiku said Kudirat Abiola’s activism set her aside as a heroine of all time in Nigeria.

Kudirat was assassinated on June 4, 1996.

At a panel of inquiry set up to investigate her death, Sergeant Rogers had confessed to have taken part in the assassination.

Remembering Kudirat 28 years after, Atiku posted on X: “Today, as always, I remember Alhaja (Mrs) Kudirat Abiola, the wife of Bashorun MKO Abiola, on the 28th anniversary of her assassination.

“Following the incarceration of MKO, his wife stepped into the fray to symbolise the struggle for democracy and the restoration of the June 12 mandate.

“Her activism and leadership marked her as a heroine of all time. The democracy we enjoy today was only made possible by the sacrifices of people like her, who paid the ultimate price. May her soul continue to rest in eternal peace. -AA”
