Former military president, Ibrahim Badamosi Babangida, on Sunday publicly asked Nigerians to vote President Muhammadu Buhari out of office next year.
Ibrahim Babangida, in a lengthy statement, listed reasons President Muhammadu Buhari should not bother returning to power in 2019.
Social media consequently went agog as some Nigerians on Twitter blasted IBB, accusing him of being a member of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP that destroyed the country. They also reminded IBB of ruining Nigeria when he was the Head of State.
Others, however, urged Nigerians to heed the advice, saying IBB should bring a candidate that will win Buhari in the 2019 election.
Here are some comments:
