Kola, following in their father’s political footsteps, ran for the presidency under the Peoples Redemption Party (PRP) in 2023, as reported by the Daily Post. However, Abdul lamented Kola’s inability to uphold Abiola’s political legacy and his failure to unify the family.

During an appearance on Seun Okinbaloye’s podcast, “Mic On,” Abdul stated, “MKO Abiola’s legacy would have been more effectively preserved if Kola had taken a stronger stance and embodied the democratic values my father championed. Unfortunately, he chose a different path.”

Abdul further revealed troubling details about Kola’s past, including his relationship with Babangida’s daughter during the time their father was imprisoned. “It’s a sad reality,” Abdul noted, “but I find a bit of solace in knowing that my father didn’t live to witness what his first son has become.”
