Kazeem, who was reacting to the development which took place as the country marked June 12 Democracy Day, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Abuja, that he lauded Buhari’s decision.
He also said that he regretted the inability of previous government administrations to have earlier named the sports edifice after Abiola.
“It’s long overdue. We had expected previous governments to make this decision and we waited in vain. Buhari should be applauded,” he said.
A stadium in Ogun is also named after MKO and Kazeem noted that this was possible due to his involvement in sports in the state.
“Having a football team around 1982 or thereabout was epic. Also owing to the fact that his team was the highest paid at that time and everyone wanted to join the club he deserved the honour.
