Laleye Dipo in Minna

Former military president, General Ibrahim Babangida (rtd), has vowed to continue to offer advice to both the state and federal governments to assist them in taking decisions that would benefit the country as a whole.

“I am ready and willing to continuously offer beneficial advice to the federal and state governments’ Babangida declared in Minna yesterday when he received the Chairman and members of the Niger State Working Committee of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

The PDP state working committee led by the state Chairman of the party, Tanko Beji, had paid a felicitation visit to the former military president at his uphill residence over his return to the country after a medical treat abroad.

Babangida who was hale and hearty said he was committed to the Project Nigeria because “I have no other country that I can call my own.”

He therefore solicited the cooperation and support of all Nigerians to the governments at all levels, saying that “without our support the governments cannot achieve their plans for the states and the nation.”

The former military ruler expressed gratitude to the delegation for finding time to visit him and assured them that he would always be available for them when called upon.

Earlier, the leader of the delegation, Beji, said they were satisfied with the state of health of the former military president and prayed that God will continue to strengthen him
