The President announced this in his speech at Eagle Square, Abuja, during the Democracy Day celebrations today Wednesday, June 12.

President Muhammadu Buhari has proposed a change of the name of the National Stadium Abuja after that of the late Moshood Abiola.

Abiola won the 1993 presidential election that was annuled by former head of state Ibrahim Babangida.

Abiola died in prison fighting for the actualization of his mandate when another military junta Sani Abacha was in power.

Buhari made June 12 the new democracy day in Nigeria last year and signed into law the proclamation last week preparatory to this year’s Democracy Day that coincided with his reelection.

At the Eagle Square in Abuja where this year’s event took place on Wednesday Buhari said the National Stadium Abuja will now be called Moshood Abiola National Stadium.
