Former military president, General Ibrahim Badamasi Babangida (rtd) has made it clear he will support any individual or group, whose objective is to achieve one Nigeria.
Babangida stated this in Minna yesterday, when he received the new leadership of the Northern Leaders and Stakeholders’ Assembly (NLSA), a northern socio-political advocacy.
IBB vowed he would never be party to any organisation or discussion aimed at the disintegration of the nation.
“I will support any group that comes out with a template that will ensure the unity and stability of Nigeria,” Babangida said emphatically, adding: “Politics is all about togetherness and the betterment of the country.”
Babangida told the group led by Alhaji Tanko Yakasai to interact with politicians across the country, irrespective of party affiliations because “they (politicians) know what Nigerians need.
“I will support and bless what you are doing but you should be fair in your dealings with Nigerians.
“This move has answered my questions and put away my worries about the essence of one Nigeria. The Assembly will go a long way in cementing the unity of the north and indeed Nigeria.”
