2nd term: ADP hails IBB for advising Buhari

IBB General Ibrahim Babangida

Babangida's spokesman, Prince Kazeem Afegbua said this in a television interview on Sunday, on the tail of a denial by Babangida and his issuance of another watered down statement.

The main opposition party said Babangida's position on the need for a dynamic, nationalistic and development-driven leadership is a direct reflection of the feeling and aspirations of Nigerians and completely captures the direction of the repositioned PDP for a better Nigeria.

The Presidency source, who does not want his name in print, said that the IGP has ordered for the arrest of Kassim Afegbua for issuing allegedly issuing a fake statement. I got authorisation and commitment from him before I issued the statement.

A statement signed and issued yesterday in Abuja by ADP's National Secretary, James Okoroma, in reaction to IBB's media reports, described the statement as timely.

"You know, IBB is for everyone, so people want to love him more than he loves himself, people want to appreciate him more than he appreciates himself, people want to play the role of IBB".

"So when the statement was released, some of his friends saw it and they felt we were trying to put the former president on a collision course with the president. So, to that extent, they went and did a statement to deny that".

New York Knicks vs. Atlanta Hawks - 2/4/18 NBA Pick, Odds, and Prediction
Entering the fourth quarter tied at 74, the Bucks and Knicks continued their seesaw battle with neither team able to pull away. Tim Hardaway Jr . stormed off the court with his head down, making no contact with anyone as he headed to the locker room.

Curiously, however, the former head of state was given the national honour of the Grand Commander of the Order of the Niger (GCON) usually reserved for occupants of the office of the vice president instead of Grand Commander of the Order of the Federal Republic (GCFR).

Babangida, in an initial statement that has generated controversy, said President Muhammadu Buhari should leave the stage in 2019 for a new generation "digital" leadership to take the country out of its current political quagmire.

Before the two, several other prominent Nigerians, including Bishop emeritus of the Catholic Archdiocese of Lagos, Anthony Cardinal Okojie, chairman of Arewa Consultative Forum (ACF) Ibrahim Coomasie, had warned of the country's gradual drift into anarchy on account of the President's failure to manage issues of Fulani Herdsmen who had been on a killing spree across the country.

He tweeted, "Kudos to IBB for telling Buhari to go".

Former military president, General Ibrahim Babangida (rtd), yesterday cautioned those fanning the embers of mutiny and discord in the country, saying it is unhealthy for anyone to pitch the political class against the great mass of Nigerians.
