In commemoration of the 26th anniversary of the June 12, 1993 presidential election, President Muhammadu Buhari has renamed the National Stadium after the winner, Chief MKO Abiola.

Buhari made the announcement in his Democracy Day speech at the Eagles Square, Abuja today.

“The National Stadium in Abuja shall henceforth be known as the Moshood Abiola National Stadium,” Buhari said.

The Herald recalls that the president recently signed an amendment to the National Public Holidays Act to recognise June 12 as Democracy Day instead of May 29.
