Former Aviation Minister and critic of Buhari government, Femi Fani-Kayode, has commended the former Military President, General Ibrahim Gbadamosi Babangida (retd) for calling for a restructured Nigeria.
Writing on his Twitter page, Fani-Kayode stated that IBB has “shown immense courage” by lending his support.
“I commend General Ibrahim Babangida for expressing his support for the restructuring of our nation. He has shown immense courage by doing so,” he tweeted.
Babangida made the remark while appealing to Nigerians to refrain from making hate speeches, which according to him led to a 20-month civil war in the past.
Speaking during the prayer to mark his 75th birthday celebration at the Hilltop in Minna, Niger State, the former military president said there was “little discord among Nigerians of different social classes.”
He urged Nigerians to synergise their different potentials “towards building a great nation.”
IBB noted that the fear of State Governors using state police to run amok, was not as strong as the greater benefit that creating state police would do the nation.
