Nigerians have poured encomiums on the late Moshood Abiola and Gani Fanwehimi as both were awarded the national honours of Grand Commander of the Federal Republic (GCFR) and Grand Commander of the Order of the Niger (GCON) respectively, on Tuesday, at the State House, Abuja.

Also honoured with a GCON at the event was Babagana Kingibe, who was the vice presidential candidate in the June 12, 1993 general election,  generally believed to have been won by Abiola’s Social Democratic Party.
