Governor Bala Mohammed of Bauchi State has described the late philanthropist and politician, Moshood Kashimawo Abiola as the most loving democrat in the history of Nigeria.
Bala Mohammed described MKO Abiola as the most acceptable democrat or politician in Nigeria owing to the fact that he decided to sacrifice himself for the good of the nation without considering the sentiments, religious division, language and geographical location.

The governor spoke at the distribution of empowerment items to youths and women under the Kaura Economic Empowerment Programme (KEEP) in the state.
In his words: “Our launching of this empowerment programme today is historic and passionate, we remember today is democracy day and we decided to do it on this day.
“This is because for whom we are celebrating, Chief Moshood Abiola has provided us with a lot of empowerment in this country.
“He did that across the board without consideration to sentiments, religious division, language and geographical location.
“Abiola will remain in our memory as the most acceptable democrat or politician in Nigeria.
“We all voted for him and that is why myself, my deputy and the government decided to do honour to him this day by coming to Gamawa and Zaki to empower the people,”
