Ibrahim Babangida, former military president of Nigeria, has expressed confidence that the general election will hold on March 28 and April 11, maintaining that the shift in dates will not affect the results.

Speaking with members of the Arewa Community for Change, who paid a courtesy visit to his hilltop residence in Minna, capital of Niger state, on Saturday, Babangida appealed to Nigerians to join hands with the government in the fight against insurgency.

He said the current situation in the northeast should not be seen as a problem peculiar to that part of the country.

“I think people should not see the insecurity as restricted to north-east alone; it is the problem of the entire country,” he said.

“Nigeria is under insurgency not only north-east. Nigerians should see it from that perspective and for that they should support the military to end the insurgency.”

He said the rescheduling of the election will not affect the outcome of the process.

He also urged INEC to improve in the provision of information in respect of permanent voter cards.

Babangida commended the members of the group for propagating the gospel of peace, particularly at during the electioneering period.

Responding, Mohammed Mohammed, the state coordinator of the organisation, appealed to INEC to conduct peaceful and credible election.

    Don Thanks for that. I agree with you, that is exactly how a statesman should address his loving Nation at the time like this. Fela Music don begin de make sense now ooh, animal wear agbada, suit etc. The real statesmen in the country The Lord will keep them and protect them. May whirl wind from the Lord carry the evil ones away in Jesus name. They pretend as if the Love Nigerian more than any other person. God is watching.Their evil desire will slay them. They shall be put to shame dispointment and failure is their portion. The Lord will cover them in Shame. Confusion will reign in their home if they have home. Peace to our nation. Already the Lord is troubling them that causing confusion this Country. They will soon go blind and necked.
