Former military president, General Ibrahim Babangida, has again canvassed for a new generation of leaders to take over power in 2019.
He asked Nigerians to vote for younger politicians during the 2019 polls to effect the generational change of power.
Babangida, a top Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) leader, made the call while receiving a delegation of YES Nigerian Movement at his Hilltop Mansion in Minna, the Niger State capital.
“While offering this advice, I speak as a stakeholder, former president, concerned Nigerian and a patriot who desires to see new paradigms in our shared commitment to get this country running. While saying this also, I do not intend to deny President Buhari his inalienable right to vote and be voted for, but there comes a time in the life of a nation, when personal ambition should not override national interest,” Babangida stated.
He urged leaders of the movement to seize the opportunity provides by the 2019 polls, to serve the country at a younger age, pledging to support them to actualize their agenda.
For the electorate, Babangida asked them to obtain their voting documents to play major roles in the 2019 polls
