“Nigeria Will Not Split Or Break In 2015” – Ibrahim Babangida, IBB Faults Upcoming Disintegration Prediction
Former Nigerian President General Ibrahim Babangida has spoken up on the predicted disintegration that might like hit the country in 2015.
The former head of states said disintegration is not something that happens in 1 or 2 months.
The ex-military ruler said he appreciates the effort of some elders working on bringing unity to the divided country.
IBB said this during a news briefing at his Uphill mansion in Minna, Niger state during his pre-birthday ceremony on Friday August 16, 2013.
Hear IBB in his own words:
“I think we should forget about disintegration in 2015, that can’t happen in this country. It is not something that happens in one or two months.
“People say things to instill fear. If the majority of Nigerians believe in the unity of the country, then, why do they worry about someone saying it will disintegrate? I know it wouldn’t. People are just crying wolf. Nigeria is one of the amazing countries we have in the world.
“If you live outside Nigeria and you hear and listen to all that, you will think the world is coming an end.
“But, you need to come and see how Nigerian people are happy, laughing, attending matches and doing other things; that is Nigeria for you”
“When people say the nation would disintegrate’’, say “that will never happen.”
“there are still some leaders who believe in the unity of the country.
“You can’t take it away and this is what we all believe in. So, anyone who believes in the unity of this country at any level is a leader.
“What we need is to follow leaders who have good intentions and understanding of what we want to achieve.
“We should also look for people who share the same view and work with them. That is how we will bring a strong leadership”, he said.
He used to be a tough military ruler during his regime now he is preaching unity.
May God’s will be done in this country.
