Buhari's Stance on MKO Abiola Election Faces Legal Hurdles

President Muhammadu Buhari's decision to posthumously confer the highest honour in the country to the acclaimed winner of the annulled June 12, 1993, presidential election, Chief M.K.O. Abiola, has continued to generate ripples within judicial circles. Some lawyers saying Buhari's action is illegal has opened the floor for a continuing legal debate. However, the Senate has resolved to take Buhari's declaration a step further by asking that the official result of the 1993 presidential election be announced. The election was annulled before final results were officially announced.
