Mr. Ibrahim Babangida deserves accolades at 75 – Atiku

Abuja – Former Vice-President Atiku Abubakar has said former military President Ibrahim Babangida at 75 deserves accolades for his contributions to the development of the nation . General Ibrahim Babangida (rtd), This is contained in a statement signed by his Head of Media, Mr Paul Ibe, in Abuja on Monday. According to him, one of the greatest legacies of IBB is giving the country a manageable number of political parties by reducing them to two. This, he said, reduced waste of resources through financial support from the country’s electoral commission. Atiku noted that following the conception of the Federal Capital Territory by Gen. Murtala Mohammed, the late Head of State, , Babangida facilitated the rapid development of the city. ”The virtues of forgiveness, and the magnanimous spirit of the former president is one of the magnetic and endearing features of his character. ”It is impossible to encounter IBB without being moved by his humility towards people, regardless of their social status in life. ”His detribalised nature and passion about Nigeria’s oneness are virtues worthy of emulation,” Atiku said. Atiku prayed that God grants IBB many more years in good health so that the country could continue to drink from his fountain of wisdom.
