2Baba, KSB, Bisi Olatilo, others storm COSON for MKO as Dele Momodu speaks on June 12

It was a beehive of activities on Monday June 12, 2017 as hundreds of gaily dressed dignitaries and journalists across varied media establish­ments in the country thronged the newly commissioned mag­nificent COSON House located on Oluwaleimu Street in Ikeja for the June 12 celebration. The celebration encompassed a lec­ture themed ‘June 12 and the Lessons of History’ which had journalist and Publisher of Ova­tion International Magazine, Bashorun Dele Momodu as Guest Speaker and the birthday celebration of TOPS first lady, the incredible singer, KASI, the June 12 Girl, born on June 12, 1993.
The event which began with a splendid cocktail on the posh red carpet laid out in front of COSON House witnessed the grand arrival of top figures such as the former chairman of NCC, Professor Egerton Uvieghara, Mr. Ken Calebs Olumese; Vice President Airtel Nigeria, Mr. Emeka Oparah; ,Bisi Olatilo, Ayo Animashaun, Mayor Akin­pelu, Mr. Mike Effiong, Azuh Arinze, Mr. Tony Onyima, Dr Austin Izagbo, Cally Ikpe, Mr. Femi Akintunde Johnson; Agi­lent Wireless MD, Mr Lawrence Wilbert, Patrick Doyle, Bankole Sodipo; Activist Lawyer, Mr. Rockson Igelige, Alex Okoroji, 2 Baba Idibia, Princess Annie In­yang, Kenny Saint Best, King Wa­dada, Chris Mba, D’lyte, G-Wilz, Kul-GP and Chief MKO Abiola’s son, Ola Abiola among many others.
Speaking on the theme ‘June 12 and the Lessons of History’, the Ovation publisher revealed that Nigeria is run by a mafia comprising of a few men and that it was them and their Cappo Di Tutti Cappi ( Boss of all bosses) who decide who rules the coun­try. Momodu went on to say that these men were not happy that Chief Abiola had won the elec­tions without their support, and that was the genesis of the June 12 problem.
Dele Momodu described the late politician as a philanthropist to the core, noting that it was his dream to use Nigeria’s wealth to eliminate suffering in the coun­try. He went on to site an exam­ple of how Chief MKO Abiola who was extremely passionate about the country donated N30 million to 30 Federal Universi­ties in a day.
Momodu also recounted his last discussion on phone with Chief MKO Abiola, and how he and the Chief’s daughter had planned to issue a statement on July 7, 1998, the same day Chief Abiola passed on.
Concluding, he declared that he believes the time is right to document his June 12 story in a book. He appealed to all who had contact with Chief Abiola during his incarceration to please come out and air their version, as the June 12 story will not be complete without detail­ing the events that happened to Chief Abiola during his impris­onment. He received a standing ovation.
