Nigeria’s next president must understand the economy, have friends in every region, says IBB

A former head of state, General Ibrahim Badamasi Babangida has said Nigeria’s next president should be able to talk to Nigerians and be verse in economics.

“If you get a good leadership that links with the people and tries to talk with the people; not talking on top of the people, then we would be okay.”

“I have started visualising a good Nigerian leader. That is, a person who travels across the country and has a friend virtually everywhere he travels to, and he knows at least one person that he can communicate with.”

“That is a person, who is very versed in economics and is also a good politician, who should be able to talk to Nigerians and so on. I have seen one, or two or three of such persons already in his sixties. I believe so if we can get him.”
