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 pollsPlease subscribe to our newsletter
