Adebayo said that the former president stressed the need to make each election in Nigeria better than any of the previous to deepen the country’s democracy for glorious future.
He said: “Former president Babangida believed that we should not negotiate the unity of this country irrespective of any challenges we are facing.
“He also advised me that if I must succeed as president of Nigeria I must practice a mini Nigeria every time, even in my house.
“He said that even in your domestic, when someone looks around he must see a mini Nigeria setting there.
