Former Military President, Ibrahim Badamosi Babangida (IBB) has finally revealed the President Nigeria needs after President Muhammadu Buhari.
In an interview aired on AIT on Sunday, Babangida put to rest the speculations on a 60 year old businessman and politician he mentioned during his recent interview on Arise TV.
In the video obtained by thenigeriadaily from AIT, the interviewer had asked the former President questions bordering on the future leadership of the country, he said.
How would you like the leadership of Nigeria to be addressed? Because it will appear that since you left, perhaps General Sani Abacha, we have as well had General Obasanjo as president. When he came in, he provided leadership but after that, I think in my experience that leadership thing has been lacking which is why in Nigeria it seems to be ruder-less how will you advice?
In his response, the former commander in chief of the armed forces said one has to be prepared and very tough.
In his words; “We are running and we will be running a democracy, but we haven’t reached the level. We didn’t have the democratic institution that are working very well, our institutions must be above parties and politics and so on and so fort.
“You have to have a lot of knowledge be it business, be it academics and so on and I feel everybody, every politician at certain age most aspire. Obama is just making sixty years old after serving two times in the United States so as Clinton and so on and so fort.
“So we can have the likes of Orji Uzor Kalu who is interested in running the country and why not?” Babangida said.
