MKO Abiola’s family members have expressed their dissatisfaction with the federal government.
According to NewsDirect, the family’s representative, Rahaman Abiola, stated this position on Saturday, June 12 in Ogun state, saying the government had failed to uphold commitments made years ago.
On Saturday, Abiola alleged that the family has yet to benefit anything from the government in Abeokuta, the capital of Ogun state.
He mentioned this during a polite visit to the family by a delegation from the state government led by the deputy governor, Noimot Salako-Oyedele.
The family’s spokesperson, however, complimented the president for bestowing the Grand Commander of the Federal Republic accolade on the late lawmaker, according to the Daily Trust.
His words: “We are happy indeed that President Muhammadu Buhari deemed it fit to honour Abiola by giving him the GCFR and made June 12 official Democracy Day. Kudos to that. So far so good, we have not benefitted anything from the federal government.”
Abiola said: “Ogun state government will always come with all the machinery to mark the day. Our breadwinner has gone. We have not seen promises from the FG yet.
“On June 12, the state government is trying its best. I give kudos to them on June 12. Governor comes here always to pay solitary to the house and empower us to make sure June 12 is celebrated all the time.”
