General Ibrahim Badamosi Babangida (rtd). The man who gave us Private television stations.


Many Nigerians remember the acts of General Ibrahim Badamosi Babangida while in office as military leader for eight years.

At this critical time in the life of this country, voices of statesmen like him are needed.

Commuters on the Third Mainland Bridge that the General built as an iconic legacy, have been asking if he has a Twitter account. Tweets from him are needed now to direct, as Nigerians ponder on the way forward for this country.

But will he issue statements on Politics and other diverse happenings?

Nobody wants to say.


By the way, at the time General Ibrahim Badamosi Babangida commissioned the Third Mainland Bridge in Lagos, China was still in the backwaters of such superstructures. Many Chinese were amazed in Lagos, seeing such a marvelous sight.

But China sped ahead and were later to be building even glass bridges, and building bridges for Railways utilizing loans, for Nigeria.

Where did we get it wrong as a nation with our Universities under lock and key ? 

Babangida is unforgettable. At least his iconic and visionary projects remain legacies for all times.



This is to salute the sagacity of the great patriot. In-law of Asaba and Delta people.
