Lagos Diaspora Destination - The Statue of M.K.O Abiola

Moshood Kashimawo Olawale Abiola GCFR, popularly known as M.K.O Abiola, was a Nigerian businessman, publisher, and politician. He was also the Aare Onakankanfo XIV of the Yorubaland, and an aristocrat of the

Egba Land. M.K.O Abiola is acknowledged as the one who paved the way for the current Nigerian democratic system instituted since 1999.

Hence, the Lagos State government erected and unveiled his statue on June 12, 2018-exactly twenty five years after he won 12 June 2018- to serve as a reminder of Abiola's legacy and the greatness he represented in Nigeria's political landscape.
