Popular Nollywood actor, Yul Edochie has penned a tribute to late Chief Moshood Kashimawo Olawale popularly called M.K.O Abiola, the presumed winner of the annulled June 12, 1993 presidential elections.

Recall that the business mogul and politician was assassinated on the July 7, 1998, in Abuja at the age of 61.

In the spirit of the celebration of the 29th anniversary of the historic election, Edochie took to his Instagram page on Monday to describe the late politician as “best president Nigeria never had”.

The actor wrote, “The best President Nigeria never had. Chief M.K.O Abiola. Continue to rest well sir. And may your struggle and legacy never be in vain.”

Edochie’s post comes days after he revealed that he didn’t pursue his 2023 presidential ambition under the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA).

The actor had said after deliberations with the leadership and stakeholders of the party, they came to the conclusion that APGA lacks the structure to win the presidential election, forcing him to drop his bid.

“To understand Nigerian politics well buy form and run for office. Win or lose your eye go clear. You’ll stop ranting and start looking at facts. Politicians don’t share money because they want to, they share money because the people demand money. Without it, only a few will listen to you,” he had written.

“Politics is not done with sentiments. If you do you’ll likely fail and keep failing. Politics is done with facts.That’s why my brother Banky W left his former party and joined PDP.”.
