“This isn’t The Democracy My Dad And Others Died For” – Kola Abiola

Kola Abiola On Nigeria’s Democracy

The son of the celebrated June 12th presidential election winner, Kola Abiola, has said Nigeria’s democracy the way it was currently being practiced was not what his late father, Chief MKO Abiola, and several Nigerians died for.

He added that it was not the kind of democracy that many Nigerians laid down their lives for. The younger Abiola said this during the Tribe Naija, 2021 Democracy Day Fireside chat, with the theme: ‘This thing Called Democracy,’ in Abuja, on Saturday.

Kola Abiola said: “I am not impressed with the democracy that we are in today, because it is not what my father and others died for. Is not what they put their lives on the line for. And I want to make sure we get what they will be proud of in their graves. The mantle is now for me to make sure that happens and that is what I mean by completing that bridge.”

Abiola called for positive disruption of the system to bring about the kind of change that makes Nigeria work for all citizens, regardless of their religious, ethnic, political affiliation, and social status.

He pointed out that the Tribe Naija platform, under which the dialogue was organized, aims to bring together young Nigerians who are passionate about thinking outside the box in order to bring about positive change in the country.

Kola Abiola said, “So, let us not make a mistake about the system. There is no system. We have inherited a system and it is time we turn that system on its head. The system just throws up what they want us to have and we have to pick from what they throw up for us to vote for. We will change that on this platform. Because our numbers will count and we will have a say. You will know exactly the numbers we have on a ward, local, and state basis through this platform. I am committed to making that happen.”
