Nigeria former military president, Gen. Ibrahim Badamasi Babangida (retd.) has sent a message to Igbo people.
He said; “Igbo people should continue to allow their positive impacts to be felt among host ethnic nationalities in the country, as they explore business opportunities available.”
“Nigerians, Igbos inclusive, should ensure they uphold the ideals of Nigeria’s founding fathers.”
“An indivisible Nigeria is very necessary and we must do everything possible to remain as one family, though we differ in tribe and tongue.”
“You should use the same spirit of enterprise to promote peaceful co-existence among Nigerians, in all that you are doing.”
“You have done well to keep Nigeria together. The Igbos are known to have the potential of traveling far and wide, exploring new frontiers and business opportunities.”
