Former military Head of State, Ibrahim Badamasi Babangida (IBB) has said Nigeria’s ideal President must be a young Nigerian.
Speaking to Daily Trust, IBB noted that Nigeria’s President should be able to engage people on any issue concerning the country.
According to him: “He should be able to communicate because a president should be able to walk into a group of people and talk to them on issues concerning Nigeria; not all the time but most of the time.
“He must have somebody he knows in every part of the country. It is not a tall order.
“You could limit it to states, you could limit it to local governments even to the wards if you can but somebody such that once you hear the name, it is somebody you will say, yes, I have heard that name before either in the country or in his profession; if he is a doctor, a journalist or whatever, all areas, we have heard the name before; okay then I will make an effort to know more about him,”
