IBB :Don’t Get Me Wrong on Younger Generation

Former military president Ibrahim Babangida has said that Nigerians should not misconstrue his recent comments about younger generation and leadership of the Nigerian nation

“I have read the printed version of my BBC interview particularly on the celebrated captions concerning leadership and the younger generation which tend to portray my positive intentions in bad light.

“To all intents and purposes, my concept of generational leadership in national development is different form the way it is captured and reported by the media which portrays a different meaning.

“Perceptions and impressions operate in different context. I have always been an advocate of generational leadership change; again, the younger generation idea which I promoted through new breed politics of late nineties needs be responsive, and active players in the governance process,” he said.

Babangida in a statement issued yesterday on his behalf by his spokesman, Kassim Afegbua, declared ‘’I was merely throwing up a challenge to younger generation – to pick up a gauntlet and be more involved in the political process – to give fillip and rationale for introducing the concept in the first place.

‘’Given the manifest complexities in the country since 1995 till date,we as a nation, must build strong institutions to prepare the way for generation leadership empowerment. We need a strong, bold and experienced leadership to contend with these complexities and build the strong institutions required to make things happen.

“Countries all over the world and advanced democracies have had their own share from the younger generation. This will be my new role if given the opportunity to serve,” he said.

The bit in bold still means the same thing as the original sin. Younger generation just not up to the job.

This is akin to the I did not cancel the elections, I annulled it explanation.

This joker paying every hack he can find to "re-brand" his (almost) 70 year old life. . .thinking he can outmaneuver everyone by embellishing his lies. . .maybe telling a lie over-and-over in different words will soon make it sound like or become truth? Hahaha. . .keep at it old man, it's almost midnight!
