Former military head of state, Ibrahim Badamosi Babangida has said the Igbos have done well in keeping Nigeria together.
Babangida said this in Minna, Niger state on Saturday when he received the Igbo Delegates Assembly (IDA) from the 19 northern states and Abuja, adding that Nigerians must ensure that the country remains one.
He said, “You should continue to allow your positive impacts to be felt among host ethnic nationalities in the country, as you explore business opportunities available,” he said.
“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.”
Babangida enjoined Igbos to use “the spirit of enterprise” to promote peaceful co-existence among Nigerians.
“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,” he said.
