2023 : IBB Lists Qualities Of Next President Of Nigeria


The Daily Crucible 
Friday, August 6, 2021

Former military leader, Ibrahim Badamasi Babangida (IBB), has suggested to Nigerians the qualities their next president should possess and be able to deploy to solve the nation's numerous challenges. 

IBB said Nigeria’s next president must speak to Nigerians and not speak on top of them, the person must understand economics, and have friends or point men in every region or ethnic nationalities.

He spoke on Friday morning when he appeared on the Arise TV programme.

Fielding series of questions at intervals,  Babangida revealed that he has seen Nigerians who possessed qualities he suggested and said the affected persons are in their sixties.

“If you get a good leadership that links with the people and tries to talk with the people; not talking on top of the people, then we would be okay.

“I have started visualising a good Nigerian leader. That is, a person who travels across the country and has a friend virtually everywhere he travels to, and he knows at least one person that he can communicate with.

“That is a person, who is very versed in economics and is also a good politician, who should be able to talk to Nigerians and so on. I have seen one, or two or three of such persons already in his sixties. I believe so if we can get him.

“Either we want to practise democracy the way it should be practised, or we define democracy on our own whims and caprices.

“If we are going to do it the way it is done all over the world, you allow the process to continue. It is through the process that you will come up with a candidate that will rule the country. His beliefs and qualifications should be considered before he throws his hat into the ring, regardless of where he comes from.”
