Abubakar in a statement by his Media Adviser, Mr Paul Ibe, in Abuja on Monday, as Babangida marked his 80th birthday, said IBB established an inclusive government that reflected Nigeria’s ethnic and religious diversities.
“You cannot deny IBB the credit for his sincere efforts to build a viable federation founded on equitable representation,’’ Abubakar said.
He noted that even Babangida’s “most stubborn critics,’’ could not deny the fact that the former military leader had built a solid national infrastructure for the nation still standing and visible around the country.
The former vice president also paid tributes to IBB for assembling one of the best and most formidable cabinets in Nigeria’s recent history because of his commitment to excellence.
He prayed to Allah to grant him more years in good health.
