At the Cenotaph of Gani Fawehinmi, the Chair of GAFAMOG, Comrade Ayodele Akele, told the gathering that without the struggles of Gani Fawehinmi there would never be an end to military rule in Nigerian, he further said without the Ganis there would have been only three parties of the rich that the masses would be forced to always choose from.
