HOW TO PARTICIPATE IN THE IBB @ 80 CELEBRATIONS.
“I want my friends to be my friends; not my masters…”
Jean Jacque Rousseau, 1712-1788, VBQ, p 69.
To those who for various reasons, some very good; others absolutely ridiculous, don’t want IBB celebrated, I have one statement to make. You are not invited. Guidelines are for those who agree. I thank everybody all the same.
GUIDELINES FOR PARTICIPATION
There are three ways to participate in the events planned by VANGUARD MEDIA LIMITED to honour former military President General (rtd) Ibrahim Badamasi Babangida, GCFR, whose 80thbirthday comes up on August 17, 2021.
Place an advertisement in VANGUARD –
Full Page Colour and Half Page.
- For adverts with prepared artwork: Full Page N621,682.74; and Half Page, N367,800.
- For adverts without prepared artwork, add N30,000. We will assist you to develop artwork after selection of the picture of your choice.
- Individual and group adverts are acceptable.
- All adverts paid for must be received by August 15, 2021 to allow the paper to be on the newsstand on time nationwide on August 17, 2021.
- TRIBUTES AND TESTIMONIES. Another way of effective participation for those wanting to pay their respects to IBB is to send in your tributes.
- TRIBUTES, not more than 60 (sixty) words, will be published together as a pull-out on August 17, 2021. Cost: N100,000.
- Again, group Tributes are allowed. Tributes paid for must also be in latest August 15, 2021.
- ALL PAYMENTS for Adverts and Tributes must be made ONLY to: Fidelity Bank VANGUARD MEDIA LIMITED. Account: 401-0122643.
- After paying, please send details of payment to: email address: firstname.lastname@example.org. Also follow the instructions on our website.
- LUNCHEON: The celebrations will be rounded up on Sunday August 22, 2021, at a COVID-19 compliant private lunch in Lagos to which a small number of IBB well-wishers will be invited. It will be a first-come-first listed affair. Register will be closed once the stipulated number is reached.
- For more information on participation in any way, please call: 0802-982-8929, 0703-813-4844, 0906-378-7310. If all else fail call 0708-137-2829.
- Adverts, Tributes and pictures taken at the Lunch will be collated and an album will be produced. Copies of the album will be delivered to His Excellency IBB in Minna. Copies will also be delivered to the IBB Library, Minna, the National Library, as well as our website for ever.
- Since most of the readers of this publication are, like me, under 80, I hope many of us will honour one of the Fathers of our nation today. Almighty God, in his infinite mercy will grant you long life and prosperity. On your day, God will send someone to mobilise others to celebrate you. IBB will not be the last leader for me to celebrate while he is still alive. I hate tributes which the dead never read. Let’s do it NOW.
“Uneasy lies the head that wears the crown.” – at all times.
