Content about Abdulsalami Abubakar

June 22, 2011

Till date, Obasanjo is seen by many Nigerians as a villain. But imagine what the sentiment would be if a few days to the handover in 1999, Abdulsalami went on air to say the February 27 presidential election was to be annulled due to “security reports”.

In many ways, former Head of State Abdulsalami Abubakar did Olusegun Obasanjo a great evil by not annulling the 1999 presidential election. Had Abdulsalami done so, Obasanjo, who won the two-way race, would today be a hero in the eyes of many Nigerians.
