Meet The Man Who Built Aso Rock And Created Your State

97

General Ibrahim Badamasi Babangida is a living legend out of Africa. The Former Nigerian Military ruler was Nigerian Head of State from 27th August 1985 to 26th August 1993.

IBB as he is popularly known, was the man who could finalize the great task of relocating Nigeria’s seat of power from Lagos to Abuja, on December 12th, 1991.

General Ibrahim Badamasi Babangida is the Chief architect of the modern Nigeria, from the late 80’s.

It was he who created the addition of eleven new states which included, Akwa Ibom, Katsina, Abia, Enugu, Delta, Jigawa, Kebbi, Osun, Kogi, Taraba and Yobe States.

The IBB administration was also credited for starting and finishing the longest bridge in Africa until the “6th October bridge” of Cairo was completed in 1996.

The Lagos third Mainland bridge which measures an incredible 11.8km in length was commissioned in 1990.

In 1991, IBB whose government still remains the undisputed most infrastructurally driven government in the history of Nigeria moved the Nigerian seat of power to the newly constructed Federal capital territory of Abuja, an initiative started by the Murtala Mohammed government.

In what seem to be a highly tasking project, the Babangida administration finalized the project of relocating power to Abuja from Lagos in just 6years after it took over power.

Little or under rated credit has been given to the imperfectness of Gen. Ibrahim Badamasi Babangida who’s government was the first to successfully organize the fairest election in the history of Nigeria, but has been heavily crucified for the annulment of the same election.

IBB and his family became the first occupants and pioneer landlord of the Aso Rock Villa, the living legend and visionary leader was the brain behind the 1999 successful transfer of power between the Military into the current civilian rule.

In his 8years rule, there is simply no government Military or civilian government that has achieved and develop Nigeria as much as the Ibrahim Badamasi Babangida government.
