In an interview with Arise Television, IBB urged Nigerians to pay attention to people in their 60s by 2023.
IBB alluded to a few persons he claimed had the ability to lead the country and efficiently manage its economic and political issues.
According to the previous military dictator, poor leadership was a big contributor to the country’s socioeconomic problems.
IBB stated that Nigeria is in desperate need of a leader who connects with the people and seeks to communicate with them, rather than one who “talks over the people.”
“I have started visualising a good Nigerian leader. That is, a person, who travels across the country and has a friend virtually everywhere he travels to and he knows at least one person that he can communicate with,” he said.
“That is a person, who is very verse in economics and is also a good politician, who should be able to talk to Nigerians and so on. I have seen one, or two or three of such persons already in his sixties.”
When asked if the person could emerge victorious in the 2023 presidential election, Babangida added, “I believe so if we can get him.”
National Leader of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Ahmed Bola Tinubu and former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar, all above 60s, are among some of the names that have been mentioned as possible replacement for President Muhammadu Buhari when his tenure expires in 2023.
