2019: It’s time for old politicians to quit politics-IBB

Former military President, General Ibrahim Badamasi Babaginda has said it is time for old generation politicians to leave the stage and to pave way for the younger ones to steer the ship of the state.

Babangida, who spoke in Minna, capital of Niger State, insisted that the old generation have overstayed in the corridor for too long, and, within the period, have failed the country.

The former leader made the call when a new political movement, “The New Nigeria” led by its leader, Moses Siloko Siasia, visited him at his Hilltop Residence in Minna, yesterday.

IBB said he and other like-minds had, as far back in 1989, advocated the possibility of handing over the country’s leadership to younger people who have the passion and zeal to propel it on the path of development and growth but the older generation was recalcitrant then.

He said history has shown that a nation’s development fulcrum progresses better in the hands of younger generation, which he said, is more adventurous and full of fresh ideas
