Former Military President of Nigeria, General Ibrahim Babangida (Rtd), has said the need for young Nigerians to lead the country cannot be over-emphasised.
Ahead of the general elections, the elder statesman, however, noted that any person interested in the seat of power must possess the needed distinct qualities of a good leader.
“What I want to see is a young man that has what I will call ‘four in one’, he said during an exclusive interview on Channels Television’s Roadmap 2019 which aired on Monday.
“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,” Babangida added.
