  1. Take your advice to your fellow Fulani herdsmen, we don’t need it, you are one of the destroyers of Nigeria, you killed Dele Giwa, you killed people in the Ejigbo plane crash, you killed officers in the Calabar plane crash , you destroyed nigeria in your SAP, you devalued Naira, you divided NIG into 6 geopolitical problem zone that recreated tribalism, you are evil, you stole NIG oil boom money during gulf war, , Nigerians would never forget you in a hurry for the nightmare and the monster you created, you killed your Yoruba Friend Abiola , you killed your Hausa Friend Maman varsa ., You are a wicked man. Do not advice Igbos , we don’t need your advice , those Igbos who went to greet you are doing so for their selfish interest, they don’t know you, you stepped aside thinking that you may come back, but God has shown you that the blood of your victims will incapacitate you on a wheelchair for the rest of your life. . It’s too late.

  2. I expect to hear him talk to them about producing next president come 2023 nothing more nothing less ibos should know that with unity among them selves is their time for having president take note

  3. I ‘ve absolute respect 4 our leaders, bt n everything dere is always an exception, dis God4bidden creature is solely responsible 4 our naira devaluation which has further led 2 hardship and many oder inhuman calamities befallen dis great nation.

    1. You seems not understand the important of unity . I think is when there is unity among us that we can talk of good leadership, and such can come from any part of the Country.as long as he will accept each of us as one Nigerian Citizen .Have a good day Sir.

  4. His Excellency Babangida the exLeader has spoken right.He had an Ibo late wife and he should be very concerned about the great Ibo tribes. Obviously, Ibo tribe Is one of the very important tribes in Nigeria. Secession of Ibo tribe will undermine and affect Nigeria adversely. As a Leader,he has to point out all the factors that is causing the reason for secession quests and recommend effective correction.

  5. Igbo’s own Nigeria economy adding political power to it that mean absolute power which will not be good for Nigeria I will support the position of vice president or president of Senate .When I was small the IBO trader in our town told me that the meaning of IBO. Is ( I before others)

    1. You are the worst mumu I have ever heard of.
      We not ibo, we are Ndi Igbo.
      Ibo means nothing to us, we can’t bear ibo, because is only the people that doesn’t know us that calls us ibo.
      Ndi Igbo, that’s what we are.

    2. Der is no tribe in Nigeria called IBO rather we have an Igbo tribe. Secondly Igbos are not in control of de Nigeria economy but dey are merchant of finished goods produced in foreign counties. Thirdly Igbos are always de hard hit each time govt rolls out economic policies targeted at stimulating local production of goods nd services. Fourtly, de buying nd selling dat de Igbos are engaged is a venture anyboby or tribe in Nigeria can also do successful. Lastly, I suggest dat Nigeria as country going through numerous challenges needed de input of a man from de east to consolidate on de no doubt achievement of Bihari.

  6. Na today, them don dey sacrifice themselves and their family, dey wake from from pilar to post all in the bid of one Nigeria, but my people lef politics one side. How far ???????. To God be the Glory! Which way Nigeria ! At the 6th
    Decades now heading to 7th Decades way no ho . Me atire Yahoo!

  7. Keep on decieving yourself and believing your smart . We’re not one and could never be. We ‘ve tried this unity of a thing for decades, but all in vain. It’s only a lazy man that refuses to try something different.

    1. Unity in injustice.These brats that are now talking about unity killed the first Nigerian military leader in a coup geard towards secession of the north only to be desuaded by the exploitative Britain. Now they are talking about a nauseating indivisible Nigeria. Only the insane and the dead can take then serious

  8. Nigeria / Nigerians has reach a pick of civilization. The greatest inventions on Earth this days is been done by Nigerians in other countries. ” There is no further development in this Country except Nigeria is divided. 1, Ethnicity 2. Religious different.3. Multi – Culture. 4. Lack of trust. Let’s encourage division to speed up development amist curiosity. Let’s establish a United States of Nigeria now .

  9. Out of the 6 geopolitical zones in Nigeria, the Ibo zone; the South East geopolitical zone is the small. How can they win presidency?

  10. Out of the 6 geopolitical zones in Nigeria, the Ibos zone; the South East Zone is the smallest. How can they win presidency?

  11. Words of elders are sources of wisdom. Whether or not he made mistakes when in power, doesn’t mean that his advise should be considered improper

  12. IBB is a jocker. He has succeeded in saying nothing. He should throw his advice to the wind because he has nothing significant to offer Nigerians; his government and dictatorial leadership of 1985-1993 formed the nuclei from which all manners of evil, crime, embezzlement, and sundry corrupt practices emanated. The innocent children born of hardship and hunger during his tenure are the ones that have metamorphosed into all brand of criminals, bandits, and brigands that are giving the nation lots of hiccups today. So, sir, please keep your advice to yourself inorder not to let the tongues spew out its foul contents.

  14. With all due respect, I think what the former president has done is simply asking a child to stop crying, not minding the root cause of his pain. Nigeria will move forward when we start addressing the problem of the people and not just the people. Thanks.

  15. The oneness we have tried for over sixty years and we are still battling up to date,why don’t we seat together and improvise a new system that be workable and acceptable to all that can fix us as a Nation
    Though, you Babangida you are one of our major problem who formitted the ungoings.God forgive you.Happy birthday.

  16. The only way to settle Biafra and Nigeria is when the three major language that makes up Nigeria, that is Igbo,Hausa and Yoruba set on a dialogue table and decided to shift 2023 president to south east only then this dream of Biafra Will end,if Nigerians could recall after the Biafra war know Igbo Man has emerge president for more than 52 years now no igbo Man has become president and you people hope to keep Nigeria as one two people can not keep what belong to three if we all say we are One Nigeria thank you all.

  17. That’s advise should go to your Fulani jahadist not for the Igbos , u have forgotten in a hurry that you are the grass root of Nigerians problem

  18. Who gave him mouth to talk. He should cover his face in shame. That’s to tell you our leaders have no shame at all. Babangida was the architect that designed and laid corruption foundation in Nigeria- chop I chop. He destroyed and placed Nigeria in the state it is today ( he laid the foundation). He should be in hiding. Shame to our leaders, non can boost of any legacy. Nigerian leaders ask yourselves, if I passed on today what would I be remembered for. “ONLY LOOTING ” SHAME TO YOU ALL BOTH PAST AND PRESENT.

  19. After staying together, what next,so you can not tell your people to give the Igbos their own fair share of the national cake, Give us President or nothing.

  20. They will not be allowed for president forever because of their selfishness and the way they kill ours leader like tafawa balewa and sir Ahmadu bello
