Babangida: Military Started Development, Democracy & Free Market Economy by fergie001: 9:32pm On Oct 02, 2020


Former Military President, Ibrahim Babangida speaks on military intervention among other issues during an appearance on Channels television’s NewsNight which aired on October 2, 2020.

Former Military President, Ibrahim Babangida, on Friday said the military provided Nigeria with the democracy being enjoyed today.

Speaking during an interview on Channels Television’s NewsNight, Babangida said contrary to claims that the military was responsible for the problems in the country; it rather provided the nation with development.

“No, we didn’t provide problems. We tried to provide the framework upon which subsequent governments who are going to come after us could build upon,” he said.

“Most of the infrastructural developments, even the democracy, we midwifed it. We started development, democracy, and a free-market economy.

“We were able to capture what the world is doing now and to try to bring it into our own country. The politicians, civilians are the best people in handling all of these things.”

Speaking further, he praised the masses for surviving what he described as the civil war in the country.

The former Head of State said Nigeria is one of the few countries in the world to survive a civil war.

Reacting to the Mali coup that ousted President Ibrahim Keita, he described the soldiers that participated in the exercise as stupid.

He commended the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) for issuing an 18-month ultimatum for the country to return to democracy.

“Military intervention in some of these things is an aberration. I don’t think we should encourage the military at all.

“From 1989 till now, things have changed. The whole world has embraced democracy, economic reform, open market and so forth. There is no place for the military. It is best done by the politicians and the civilians,” he said.

This dictator who is one of the sad reminder of our wasted years as a nation should just quietly live out his last days and stop trying to be relevant.

His myopia and greed, and that of his ilks is the reason Nigeria is still prostrate and near comatose.

He should be ashamed of himself!

Babangida is a clown!

His government presided over one of the worst economic policies (SAP) in history!

Soldiers don't even have any business in the running of governance in an organised system, their job is solely to defend the territorial integrity of the Nation!

Military has done much better than the democracy we echo.

When it comes to infastructral developing, it's not arguably that the fifteen years of Military regime can't be compared with close to thirty years of Cilvilian wastage.

We all may be thinking that Military government was not accountable to the public, but huge amount being wasted in the formulation and propagating of our law makers makes me to shed tears many a time.

Rigging, bribing and corruption can not even allow us to actually cross-check and ascertain if what we really run is representative government.

Let me just stop, because if I continue, more pages will go.
