“You know the Abiola family, we are not that much. People think we are a lot. We are only 55. Well, there were 40 wives. Then according to the will… I think about forty-something though. There were some wives that were not there at the end. But not at the beginning, but at the end. Most of the wives had maybe one or two for my dad. Not every one of them,” he said.
“When my father was alive, he was paying for 103 people to go to school. But like I said not all of them were his. So after the blood tests, we happen to be 55,” Abdulmumuni added.

In another related piece, Legit.ng previously reported that Abdulmumuni Abiola said his elder brother, Kola Abiola, is not fit to lead Nigeria.

He explained that Kola failed to manage Abiola’s empire, hence, he is unfit to be Nigeria's president.

Asked if he blamed Kola for the manner in which things had gone and whether he believed the legacy of Abiola would have been properly sustained rather than it was now, Abdul said, "I definitely do because he was in a better position, especially after the whole crisis."
