She said: "Nelson Mandela was the one who said, 'It always seems impossible until it is done.' Who would have believed, given the relationship that you had with MKO Abiola, that you would be the instrument God will use to honour this man and to bring reconciliation and healing to the country.

"You apologised to my father and it touched my heart; you know that I lost also my mother in this struggle. To get apology meant so much, let me use this opportunity on behalf of Chief MKO Abiola, because I know what he would have done.

Anenih said Abiola repeatedly told him that Ibrahim Babangida was only trying to embarrass him by annulling the June 12 election.

According to Anenih, he flew to Lagos where he met with Abiola's running mate, Babagana Kingibe on the issues surrounding Babangida's annulment.
