He said this on Sunday in Abeokuta, the Ogun capital, after his investiture as a trustee of the Abeokuta Club. He said Ibrahim Babangida, who was head of the state at the time, denied Abeokuta from three presidents.
“I want to thank the club for this honour being bestowed on me and the honour being bestowed on my school mate MKO Abiola which he richly deserved”, The Nation quoted him as saying.
“When you win a cup three times, you keep that cup. Isn’t it? If not for bad belle, Abeokuta would have produced the President of Nigeria three times, in which case we should have kept it permanently.”
