A prominent politician that believes Nigeria deserve its fundamental freedom.

Abdul-Lateef Kola Abiola, also popularly known as Kola Abiola, is a prominent figure in Nigerian politics as well as the late MKO Abiola’s eldest son. He was born on July 1, 1962, in Abeokuta, Ogun State, in the South-West area of Nigeria. Together with his siblings, he was raised by his parents. Before moving on to university, he completed his primary and secondary schooling in Ogun State. After finishing high school, he got a Bachelor of Science in Finance from the University of California, Berkeley and a Master of Business Administration from Colorado State University. He came back from England and started working at the University Staff School in Akoka. At the time, his father was an accountant while his mother lectured at YabaTech.

Since returning from his year of service in Zaria, he has reformed and restructured several of his father’s businesses. It was unexpected that he would enter politics, but one of the most compelling aspects of the narrative so far is his aspiration with concrete plans to propel Nigeria to the greatest heights. For him, this political party is the embodiment of his beliefs in equal opportunity in the workplace, in business, and in politics. His point was that his group exemplified the ideal that people of all ages, races, and cultures should be given the same opportunities to succeed.

His political aspiration gained him the party victory.

Giving some background on how he got into politics, he said, in 1979, he travelled all over the country under NPN. He served as a polling representative for his mother, that was running for Senate at the period at Abeokuta North Local Government. However, He announced his candidacy for president in the 2023 election on April 14, 2022, running on the People’s Redemption Party (PRP) ticket. According to many, the logical thing to do would be to align with either of the two major parties in the country, but those who understand realise that things need to be more progressive.

Furthermore, as a result of his aspiration, Mr. Kolawole Abiola emerged as the presidential candidate for the People’s Redemption Party (PRP), with Zego Haro Haruna as his running mate. He defeated Usman Muhammad Bugaje, his closest rival, and the other candidates to win the party Presidential nomination. The primary was held in all of Nigeria’s 36 states, and Alhaji Falalu Bello, the party’s national chairman, announced that he had won. According to him, a 36-person committee, as well as the State organising committee for the primary election, had been established earlier, and they were the ones who ran the Primary elections in several states of Nigeria. He clarified that the party’s presidency was open to all members and not assigned to any specific region.

He believed that the country’s reputation and glory would be restored.

Continuing on, he considers Nigeria’s short- and long-term future, he reiterates that he and the People’s Redemption Party (PRP) are dedicated to the great divine plan for Nigeria. According to him, there is hope for all Nigerians. Nigeria has the potential to fulfil its reputation as Africa’s giant, but its citizens must be encouraged to seize control of the country’s future. What is needed is leadership that is active, focused, responsible, and centered on the needs of the people they serve. To that aim, the party will keep pushing for policies that foster domestic unity and cohesion despite racial and religious differences and international peace and mutual understanding.

During the Presidential Town Hall Series, which Kadaria Ahmed moderated, Abiola Kola, together with his vice presidential candidate, Haro Haruna Zego, stated that the People’s Redemption Party would operate a government that was comprehensive and that each citizen would feel like they were a part of it, just as the party name implies. Zego also touched on one of the five essential concepts of their manifesto when he noted that the portion concerning state intervention over the commanding heights economy relates to resource authority. This means states would be allowed to practice a certain authority over any resource generated from there.

Nigeria would be recognised and respected internationally – Kolawole.

Moreover, he declared that supporting the People’s Redemption Party would mean supporting a candidate with a strong dedication to and respect for the Nigerian people and their fundamental freedoms as guaranteed by a modern state. Voting for the party means supporting their commitment to ensuring the safety and security of the people, improving the quality of life for all citizens, and maximising economic opportunity for all citizens. The Abiola-Zego ticket will set up a government that leads towards the front rather than the back; a government that is simultaneously responsive and responsible, which is treated with respect and recognised at both home and abroad for its effectiveness and achievements, and that does not rely on compensated propagandists to polish up its image.

The most reasonable course of action would be to affiliate oneself with one of the two major parties in the country; yet, people who are aware of the situation are aware that things need to be made more progressive.
