MKO Abiola’s Eldest Son Joins Politics

Mr Kola Abiola, eldest son of the winner of June 12, 1993 presidential election, late Chief MKO Abiola, has joined the Peoples Redemption Party.

The News Agency of Nigeria reported that Abiola was formally accepted into the party on Thursday at its national secretariat, Abuja by the national chairman of the party, Mr Falalu Bello.

 “I formally welcome you into our fold. Your antecedents speak volumes,” Bello said while welcoming Abiola.

Earlier, Abiola said, “Today makes my formal inroad, after 27 years, back into politics.

“I particularly picked to come back into politics through the PRP for some good reasons.

“I have gone back to the history of Nigeria to look at the party that truly represents Nigeria.

“I have gone back and I have found out that the oldest living party is the PRP; it still holds those ideals of what Nigeria and democratic practice should be like.”

According to him, it is a party that was started by the people and truly for the people.

“I have come back to PRP to show Nigerians that not too long ago, we did things in the right way and the new entities that have come together nowadays forget that there was Nigeria that did things right.

“I am one that believes in an equal opportunity be it employment, be it business, equally in politics and I believe this party represents all of these.

“Everybody should have equal opportunity, irrespective of age, religion and ethnicity and that is represented here,” Abiola said.
