In an interview with Arise Television, IBB urged Nigerians to pay attention to politicians in their 60s by 2023.
IBB referred to a few persons he claimed had the ability to lead the country and efficiently manage its economic and political issues.
According to the previous military dictator, poor leadership was a big contributor to the country’s socio-economic problems.
IBB stated that Nigeria is in desperate need of a leader who interacts with the people and seeks to communicate with them, rather than one who “talks over the people.”
he said: “I have started visualising a good Nigerian leader. That is, a person, who travels across the country and has a friend virtually everywhere he travels to and he knows at least one person that he can communicate with,”
“That is a person, who is very verse in economics and is also a good politician, who should be able to talk to Nigerians and so on. I have seen one, or two or three of such persons already in his sixties.”
