Former Senator Shehu Sani praised President Muhammadu Buhari for renaming Abuja National Stadium after the presidential election winner on June 12, 1993, MKO Abiola.
Lastestalert understands that from now on the Abuja stadium will be called Moshood Abiola Stadium.
The President made it public while giving a speech to commemorate the celebration of the Day of Democracy on 12 June 2019 in the Eagles Square in Abuja, the capital of Nigeria.
In response to a Twitter post, Shehu Sani called Buhari to renovate the National Stadium.
He wrote: “Renaming the National Stadium Abuja after Chief MKO Abiola is a great honour and commendable.
“Abiola was a pillar of sports, he deserves it.
“This should also be an opportunity to renovate and refurbish the arena for so long in a decrepit state.”
