Former Military President, Ibrahim Badamasi Babangida (IBB), has stated that politics should not be played to disunite the country but should be used for the unity of the country.
According to a report, IBB, who received the founding fathers and members of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) at his uphill residence in Minna on Monday, October 16, advised them to be focused in their political activities and work hard for the unity of the country instead of engaging in acts that will disunite the country.
