Former military head of state, Ibrahim Badamasi Babangida (IBB) says Nigeria’s next president should be able to talk to Nigerians.
The former military ruler said Nigeria’s next president must speak to the citizens, understand economics, and have friends in every region.
He said this while speaking with Arise TV on Friday.
Babangida said he has seen Nigerians who have the qualities he described, and they are in their sixties.
He also ruled out the former Vice President Atiku Abubakar and Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu from the 2023 presidential race.
He said,” “If you get a good leadership that links with the people and tries to talk with the people; not talking on top of the people, then we would be okay.
“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.
“That is a person, who is very versed 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. I believe so if we can get him.”
