To Have Annulled the June 12 Election Was Not a Big Deal - IBB


One of the stakeholders of the failed contraption called Nigeria has insisted that he did Nigeria a favour by conducting the June 12 election. Babangida narrated that in his days as the former military head of state in the failed contraption called Nigeria he had only one responsibility which was to hold on to his trigger and force Nigeria to remain one.

In this regard, conducting the June 12 general election was considered by Babangida as the greatest favour he did to the people forced to live together under the Lugard’s  amalgamated geographical expression he called Nigeria.
Speaking in an interview on a one of the television programs, General Ibrahim Babangida has said that Nigerians should give him credit for conducting June 12 election and not criticize him for cancelling the freest election in the country.

Former military head of state, said ‘During the war of forcing Nigeria to remain one, at least two or three million people have lost their lives in the course of keeping the country one. 
Instead of acknowledging the fact that the whole fight was to oppress and suppress Biafrans in order to take total control of the oil in Biafra land, he blushed and claimed that he was fighting to be fair to those who put down their lives to force Nigeria to remain united?
According to him, “So I think to be fair to them, we have no option but to accept what they have done because they sacrificed their lives for us to remain united – we shouldn’t negotiate anything to the unity.

Still referring to the old days and making reference to the man that had a selfish ambition to become the best president which Nigeria never had, he pointed to Obafemi Awolowo,
It could be noted that Obafemi Awolowo was the brain behind the food blockage against Biafrans that caused the starvation of millions of Biafran children who died as a result of malnutrition during the purported annihilation of Biafran people.
 Babangida maintained that he has been looking for a kind of Awolowo who can develop ideas that will take over from their generation of tyrants.

According to him, “I want to see a young man who has a vision of a man called Obafemi Awolowo; I want to see a young man who has the charisma of a man called the Sardauna of Sokoto, Ahmadu Bello; I want to see a young man who has the eloquence and education and powers of Dr Nnamdi Azikiwe; and I want to see a young man who has convictions like General (Olusegun) Obasanjo,”.
He concluded by saying that “If these two are not options, then somebody should be sitting down to think about what to do.

It could be noted that the only head ache and a bone in the neck of all the stake holders of the failed contraption called Nigeria is IPOB.  The list of stakeholders mentioned by Babangida truelly belonged to the generation past and with the rising of the Indigenous People of Biafra, it is crystal clear that Nigeria has got nowhere to hide.
