Former military president of Nigeria, Ibrahim Badamosi Babangida, has said that Nigeria will never breakup.

He gave the statement while speaking on Channels Television.

According to him, no Nigerian soldier can think of coup now.

“I can tell you no that only a stupid soldier will think of a coup d’état because this is outside their head, it is no longer in their psyche.

“It is no longer acceptable in Africa and in the world generally, so he is intelligent enough to know that if he stages a coup, the country will be ostracised in the world community of nations.

“There can be an uprising in your own country, so it’s no longer fashionable,” IBB said.

“You cannot convince me that this country should break; I wouldn’t talk to you for a long time because I know people died trying to keep the country one, so my generation will insist this country remains one.

There are 200 million people in this country and there are some people in my generation and the one after mine, who will always believe in this country and those generations, will move this country towards the required objective,” he added.
