According to a report on ThisDay, Nigeria’s former military president, General Ibrahim Badamasi Babangida (rtd), is reportedly seriously ill, a source close to his hilltop mansion in Minna, the Niger State capital, has informed the publication yesterday.

The source also disclosed that the former military leader has been ill for a while, resulting in his inability to attend most public functions.

Though ThisDay could not ascertain the real cause of his illness, the source apart from saying that it was age-related, added that he might be suffering from a relapse of the radiculopathy disease which has troubled the former Nigerian leader since he was head of state.

It was also learnt from the source most times, he is unable to walk unaided without a walking stick or the assistance of his security personnel as he has also said to have emaciated a lot and looks pale.

The illness of the former military president became public last week when he attended the valedictory dinner for the former Niger State Chief Judge, Justice Fati Lami Abubakar and was aided out of the venue before the end of the event.

It was said that Babangida now travels to Abuja frequently where he receives medical attention and has cut down on receiving visitors at his home.

It can be recalled that General Babangida was Nigeria’s military president for eight years, but was forced to stepped down after he annulled the 1993 presidential election believed to have been  won by the late Chief MKO Abiola.

  7. Moyeni point to notes IBB commissioned the third mainland bridge, the project was finished when he was the head of state and not his initiative or programme for Nigerian

  8. @ dimson I only asked a question and I wonder how people pass exams because your response has not answered my question. If u care to know babangida built the third mainland bridge but it took forever for him to finish the project. I don’t comment on what I know nothing about.

  9. WHY ALL THIS TALK ABOUT WHO BUILT THE 3RD MAINLAND BRIDGE. IF IBB DID, AND SO. IT WAS OUR MONEY AND HIS RESPONSIBILITY. WHAT ABOUT KICK BACKS FROM ALL THOSE PROJECTS?
