Abacha’s First Speech

Do you guys remember that inconspicuous fellow called Sani Abacha?  Believe it or not, he was something of a key speech maker.  I’ve found this golden nugget video of him making his first broadcast as Head of State in 1993. This is the night he overthrew Ernest Shonekan and took the top job himself. Video footage of this speech was rare back then. So watch and enjoy the wordsmith Abacha. Have a great weekend everyone.
