The former military head of state, General Ibrahim Badamasi Babangida has lamented that sixty-one years after independence, Nigeria is still struggling, not yet a nation.
The Nigerian Tribune reported that he made this assertion during a chat with a pan-Nigerian group called Team New Nigeria, (TNN) at his Hill-top residence in Minna, Niger State on Monday, August 8.
IBB shares stunning details According to him, those of them who had the opportunity to rule the country tried to build a Nigeria where all citizens are patriotic and think about the country first, however, lamented that Nigerians still talk in terms of tribes, region and religion.
“We are just trying to be a nation, we have not succeeded yet. But, it is a good thing that people like you have come together to say, Enough! We have to do something. “I think, this is something that, is long overdue.
I have continued to engage a lot of my friends, brothers and colleagues about this great country. Sixty-one years after, we still talk in terms of tribes, regions or religions.”
IBB pledged To this end, he pledged to mobilise national support for Team New Nigeria (TNN) with a view to accomplishing the aims and objectives of the group.
