General Ibrahim Badamasi Babangida (retd), a former military president, has said that he would  continue to  offer  his advice  to both the federal and state governments where necessary to move the country forward, just  as he called for total support for the President Mohammadu Buhari-led administration.

“I am ready and willing to continuously offer beneficial advice to the federal and state governments,”Gen Babangida declared .

The former military president spoke on Tuesday when he received the Chairman and members of the Niger State Working Committee of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

The PDP working committee led by Tanko Beji, the state chairman, visited Babangida at his uphill residence on his return to the country after a medical check- up.

Said he: ”I am committed to the Project Nigeria because I have no other country that I can call my own.”

He called for the cooperation and support of all Nigerians to governments at all levels, saying “‘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 when called upon.

Earlier, the leader of the delegation, Beji prayed God to grant the former military president sound health to serve the state and nation longer.

He urged Babangida not to relent in his advisory role, saying “the younger generation is happy to be tapping from your wealth of experience.”
