MKO Abiola: I Go Dye writes Buhari, asks president to jail Babangida

Popular stand-up comedian and MC, Francis Agoda, popularly known as I
Go Dye has called on President Muhammadu Buhari to prosecute Ibrahim
Badamosi Babangida, who annulled June 12 election of 1993, which Late
M.KO. Abiola won.

He said Babangida should be thrown behind the bar should he fail to
apologise to Nigerians for depriving them the gains of an election
adjudged to be the fairest and freest in the history of Nigeria.

I Go Dye made his opinion known in an open letter to the President in
commemoration of the new status of June 12 supplanting May 29th as the
Democracy Day.

"Honestly speaking, why should we ignore the man that conspired with
others unknown to Nigerians to deny us the freedom and joy of
celebrating the most peaceful elections conducted in Nigeria? IBB
should apologise to Nigerians for annulling June 12 election. If he
fails to do so, he should be prosecuted.

"The recent announcement on the June 12 issue cannot be complete
without stating the final results of the elections. It is worthy to
recall, just as Goodluck Jonathan gave room for a free and fair
election by conceding defeat to you ,which is the greatest honour
accorded him today, so will you be highly respected if you totally
announce the outcome of the 1993 Presidential elections. This will be
the biggest achievement of your administration in it's fight against

"After the June 12 saga, majority of Nigerians lost hope in the
electoral process and have found it extremely difficult to even
collect their voters card or participate in elections. They have
continued to live on the assumption that votes don't count.

"I strongly advise President Buhari, to make them believe that their
votes will begin to count again and step up the standard by
immediately revealing the true outcome of the 1993 election,with a
view to discouraging recurrence in the future and if need be,
prosecute those that perpetrated this act against the will of
Nigerians," he said.

He concluded the letter by advising the President not to let another
take the shine off him by completing what he had started.

"I appeal to Mr President, reminding him that millions of Nigerians,
are anxiously waiting for him to direct INEC to finally declare MKO
Abiola as the president-elect in the 1993 elections. Sir, do not allow
this opportunity to pass you by, because if you don't complete this
issue, someone else will take the full honour in the nearest future to
announce the results to Nigerians

"Take the pride; show that extraordinary bravery and write your name
in the heart of the nation ,as the hero of our new democracy by
declaring the winner once and for all," the letter read.
