IBB Charges Lawmakers On Good Governance
Ibrahim Babangida, former Nigerian military head of state has described Nigeria as a country which is difficult to rule due to its diversities.
Speaking on Tuesday when he received members of the house of representatives minority caucus, led by Ndudi Elumelu at his hilltop residence in Minna, Niger state, Babangida said the population and complexity of Nigeria makes it difficult to govern.
“The country is complex and difficult because, there are as many opinions as there are the number of people in the country,” he said.
“Nigeria is a very vibrant society and what is important is the determination, you have to remain very resilient in everything you do for the benefit of the country.”
The former military leader also charged lawmakers to represent their constituencies well in the interest of its people and the country at large.
“I am passionate about observing what is going on in the country; I develop lots of interest in the ongoings across the country and I think the leadership of the House of Representatives, the Speaker, the opposition leadership and everyone. I think you are all doing well,” he said.
“You represent the people and it is what the people wish that you take up. I want to commend you for doing your job honourably and urge you not to give up.
“It is time to settle down to do a lot of good work for your constituency and for the country.”
