Former Military Head of State Ibrahim Badamasi Babangida (IBB) has urged Igbos to always allow their positive impacts be felt amongst host ethnic communities in the country and work towards promoting the unity and indivisibility of Nigeria.
Babangida made the declaration when he granted audience to the Igbo Delegates Assembly (IDA) from the 19 northern states and the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja, led by IDA President Chief Chikezie Okezie and the Eze Igbo of Minna, Eze Pampas Ngozi Wahiwe.
Nigerians, including Igbos, the former Head of State said, should ensure they uphold the ideals of the country’s Independence founding fathers, adding that, “an indivisible Nigeria is very necessary and we must do everything possible to remain as one family though we differ in tribes and tongue.”
Babangida appreciated the Igbos for being very enterprising and determined to succeed by expanding into all parts of the country for business exploits, as he urged the community to use the same spirit of enterprise to promote peaceful co-existence among Nigerians in all that they do, especially their host communities.
