ABUJAâ€”A group under the aegis, â€œthe people affectionately shows solidarity for IBB, said yesterday that if Nigeria must get a proper direction for the attainment of credible and qualitative leadership in 2011, former Military President, Ibrahim Badamosi Babangida remains the only stabilizing factor.
According to the group, the present situation Nigeria has found itself would require Babangida who is an experienced individual with political clout and clear cut vision anchored on intelligence to reposition, refocus and redirect â€œthe dwindling fortunes of this great nation that is blessed with both human and material resources towards the actualization of the set objectives of vision 20:20:20 and by extension the Millennium Development Goals, MDGs, as a tool for good governanceâ€.
Addressing newsmen in Abuja yesterday, the groupâ€™s National Coordinator, Mrs Halima Alfa said, â€œafter a wide spread consultations within and outside the shores of this country on the path to the realization of the dreams of getting an acceptable, credible, and responsible material that will pilot the country to the promised land come 2011.
Mrs Alfa, Kogi East Senatorial hopeful who noted that it was a clarion call to service, stressed that it has nothing to do with recycling against the backdrop that it has happened in the United States, Israel where former leaders were called back to administer following their experiences and diligence.
“Babangida possesses the qualities to save the nation and restore the hope of all the federating units in the country,” she said.
