President Mohammadu Buhari on Wednesday renamed Abuja National Stadium as Moshood Abiola Stadium.

He made this intimation in the course of his speech at the maiden celebration of Democracy Day at Eagle Square Abuja.

The announcement was greeted with wild cheering and applause from the teeming crowd.

It will be recalled that ex-President Gooduck Jonathan had a made similar move in 2012 to rename University of Lagos after Abiola, but it was resisted by the University community; thus the renaming could not be materialised
