A daughter of the late MKO Abiola, Tundun, on Sunday said it was not by election that former president Olusegun Obasanjo got into office in 1999 , She believes that Obasanjo was handpicked by the then military regime, to compensate the people of the South-West region for the death of her father, the presumed winner of the June 12, 1993 presidential election.

“Obasanjo was appointed the president, he was not elected president. We did not have any election in 1999, we had a coronation,” Tundun stated during an interview on Rubbin Minds on Channels Television.

She made the comments in reaction to the declaration of June 12 as the new Democracy Day and the posthumous award of GCFR conferred Abiola by President Muhammadu Buhari.

Tundun also criticised Obasanjo for failing to recognise her late father for his contributions to the nation’s development. “When you know you were not elected, you know you were selected and just appointed president by the military, it is galling for him to
have acknowledged a democratic process.
