Don’t just rename Abuja Stadium after MKO Abiola, renovate also – Shehu Sani

Former lawmaker, Senator Shehu Sani, has said that renaming of the Abuja National Stadium Abuja to Moshood Abiola stadium is not just enough, but the action should be followed with the renovation of the stadium.

President Muhammadu Buhari while delivering his inaugural June 12 Democracy Day address at the Eagles Square, Abuja on Wednesday renamed the stadium after Abiola the acclaimed winner of the 1993 presidential election annulled by former military head of state Ibrahim Babangida.

Shortly after the President’s announcement, Sani took to Twitter to react to Buhari’smove which he described as commendable.

He tweeted:

“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 decrepit state.”
